    Hard to believe this is just 10 years old. Must've been one hell of a cask. Thoroughly enjoyable and very classic Glenfarclas (without the 'virgin oaky spice' from the newer bottlings, mind you). Coughsweets. Rhubarb pie, no bitterness whatsoever.

  3. drwx scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    My notes won't do this youthful beauty justice but it is a glorious first fill sherry hogshead matured whisky from Glenfarclas. Very active wood, the oak leads the way and tames the youthful spirit a bit.

    On the nose and palate I get roasted nuts, oak, salted caramel, chocolate and sherry. The finish is long with oak and cacao dust.

    A refined sherry bomb and the high ABV is well integrated.
