Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 21-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Erik1908 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    The 2nd Glenfarclas in lineup after the 15y and before I will try the 25y. Like the 15y good value for money. Although I normally drink whiskies at >43% abv, this one imho does not need a higher percentage.
    • Nose

      The nose is by far the best. Well balanced sherry influences. Not too strong. Nice and sweet; fruits all over the place.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Light and tasty. Again noneed for a higher abv. Fruits and sherry well balanced. Oily and waxy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length. Dry and not too much outspoken.

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Red fruits combined with caramel sweetness, and some wood. Doesn't feel being matured in very new sherry casks. And in the background there is some horsestable nose

    Taste:
    Sweet, quite a bit of sherry influence, so red fruit and strawberries I get this time. Quite a bit of wood influence. Give it some water and it brightens up rather good.

    Body:
    Round and full

    Finish:
    Medium length. The finish is rather dry. But there is again a proper sherry influence.

    Price:
    For around €65,- it is a rather good priced whisky.

    Presentation:
    As always, sober and decent

    Comments:
    Cork broke.
