Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1962

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.60 points

  1. ctu scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Matured whisky with massive oak and sherry and wonderful depth. Anyone who likes a bit morbid things will love it. 93/94. Now rather 94, because a few drops of water reduced the oak, and gives a very good balance.
    • Nose
      94 94
      Well, it's s a surprisingly fresh, but matured nose. Sherry, waxy fruits and prune. Cocoa, caramel, citruses, lacquered wood and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Powerful. Big sherry and matured tannic oak. Sweet fruits and sour vividly acidic berries: gooseberry, blueberry and black currant. Dark chocolate, liqueurs and mild smoke. Nutmeg.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, oaky, spicy.

    One may quietly add some water to make it even softer. The slight bitterness after the long finish remains unfortunately on the tongue; a pity.

  5. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    producer's tasting notes:

    The first thing you notice is the colour: a bold, rich red.

    Then a surprise: it's light and refreshing on the nose, not what you would expect from a whisky of this age - or this strength. Instead, fresh peaches and pears present on the nose.

    The fruitiness, however, is almost completely gone on the taste, replaced by a bold sherry experience. It fills your mouth completely and is very dry (almost a little musty). 

    A light smokiness with some oakiness is also present but nothing you wouldn't normally expect from a 46-year-old whisky. At 52%, this whisky has also kept its strength amazingly well. Don't be frightened to add a drop of water, which releases many more exciting aromas, more earthy notes and marzipan. 

    The lovely, long, mouth-filling finish completes another great from Glenfarclas. Bottled 2008.
