Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1993

- Clean sherry profile, surprisingly fruity with slight hints of mint and citrus aromas in the nose. Also in the mouth very pleasing and extremely tasty, beautiful raisins in the finish. Price- / Leistungsknüller!
- A typical Glenfarclas of the "modern age". A wonderful fruity nose, dominated by tart wood notes and subtle sulfur body and finish. For me, a decent all-day dram. No special highlight, but a fine dram for in between. Tastes!
Shining and radiant, the Glenfarclas shimmers bright amber with a reddish stitch in the glass. Fine fruity sherry aroma rises from the glass, apricots and tangerines play together. A touch of marzipan mixes with orange slices and pushes through the harmoniously integrated alcohol. The orange flavors become more intense, my mouth is watering. Subtle citrus fruits and a touch of cherries are added, slightly malty sweetness is suppressed by the intense orange-apricot mixture.
The first sip is immediately dominated by spicy and fruity oak. In short, a dry mouthfeel arises before pleasant sharpness sets in. Spicy, with a touch of sulfur, the taste now exudes a wooden peppery pungency. The sulfur becomes more dominant, in the end the wood becomes tart and drier again. Grapefruit aromas and a bitter walnut aroma are created.
The departure begins with this bitter walnut aroma. A slight hint of sulfur lies over the finish, bitter immature walnut aroma mixes with harsh wood tones. For a long time the finish exudes this aroma. Again subtle sharpness and a hint of orange peel with grapefruit.
- Delicious Glenfarclas, has a little more finesse than the standard range without being overloaded. Clear on the nose.
Rich sherry flavors. Raisins, plums, orange peel with a hint of marzipan. Appears very fruity, slightly sour cherries with a somewhat refreshing note. Goes in the direction of mint and lavender for me. Alcohol hardly noticeable and well integrated. All this is accompanied by a beautiful woody component. Harmonious, not too pushy.
I like my nose.
First soft, slightly creamy onset, then sparkling, spicy, almost peppery hotness. Here also beautifully fruity with a certain honey sweetness. A little chocolaty with oranges and plums.
Medium-long finish, somewhat dry at the back, slightly bitter in the direction of dark chocolate.
- A good Glenfarclas. Pretty fruity nose. The fruits are not completely dark fruity. In addition, some wax, a certain freshness and woody notes.
Sweet in the mouth, but not as fruity as the nose. After that, then significantly tart and embossed by the oak, but never unpleasant.
- Raisins, oranges, mint, marzipan, cherries, butterscotch and forest honey! Great whisky!
- It doesn't pick me up. Wood dominated, fruit notes have little chance. In addition, a strange acid. But all one-dimensional for me. Specially ...
- Good malt, tastes good. Sherry fruit nose, in the mouth but rather tart and oaky.
Fresh at the beginning, with eucalyptus. Then Sherrynase with dry fruits, raisins, chocolate, honey, a few indefinable herbal notes.
At first a bit dry-dry. Over time, the sweet ingredients come: honey, dried fruit, orange oil, chocolate, plus pepper, a few herbs.
Medium. Now clearly on the wood-heavy side. Dark chocolate, will be very dry in the end.
Bread dough, mirabelles, honey, muesli, mint, sherry, prunes, oranges, wild berries, herbs
sweet and tart notes, orange peel, quite dry, spicy, a hint of pepper, quite yummy, wild berries, harsh forest honey a little coffee and grapefruit
dry, spicy, black pepper, with orange zest, oak cabinet wall and coffee
- Another great expression by Glenfarclas. There is something missing in the aftertaste.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
Dark fruits, plums, nutmeg, overripe oranges, sherry, honey, berries, scones way in the back.
Dark fruits, red fruits, chocolate, cacao, sherry, marmalade, oak.
Medium. Dark chocolate, coffee, spicy dominating oak.
