    Man, what a wall unit. It is soft and long on the palate. I like it very much.

  2. Bart&Claudia scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    A complex dram. Lovely spices. Intense salted toffee on the nose, but there's a herbal quality to it as well. Perfumy. The palate has those typical Glenfarclas coughsweets, to me it is the equilibrium between 'farclas spirit and good casks. Dutch folk will know: Haagse Hopjes. The finish is long, warming, with cinnamon and chai latte. Hints of eucalyptus. What a wonderful winter dram. The oily texture is a bonus. Perfect strength, just one teaspoon of water added.

  3. Echnaton scored this whisky 96 points Expert Junior

    An absolute top whisky
    Nose: sherry, sweet, full, dark fruit, not alcoholic.
    Flavor: sweet, prunes, chocolate
    Finish: light oak flavor, long-lasting milk chocolate and again the prune

  9. WhiskyOss scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Intense, rich, sweet sherry. Ripe cherries, dates, milk chocolate and toffee. Exceptionally beautiful. Flavor: A waxy mouthfeel, oil-like. A slight spiciness of the wood but especially sherry notes of dried fruit (raisins, dates) and ripe dark cherries. A slight bitterness that tends to coffee. Finish: Nice long aftertaste, soft mouthfeel. Again, cherries and dried fruit with a slightly bitter edge of coffee.
