    A crowning completion of the Trio Selection. This 15-year-old Glenfarclas appealed to me the most with its complexity and harmonic character. Fortunately, the different age groups in the Trio Selection have their own character and are different and delicious in their own way. A certain basic character, however, connects the 3 bottlings, whether this is the so-called Brennereicharakter I can not say. Behind me are 3 great and different bottlings of the 2016 exclusively for Taiwan bottled Trio Selection, with me this bottling tasted the best.

    • Nose
      Dark amber shines and shines from the premium snifter, gluing long and oily "legs" on the glass wall again and flow in slow motion towards the glass bottom. Sweet apricots and caramelised sugar blend with sweet toffee and creamy caramel at the beginning of the nosing. Voluminous fruit aromas stand out powerfully from the glass, hints of sweet Rumtopf end in pears, bananas and pineapple. The nose is the most characteristic and the most complex in comparison to the two other pigs from the Trio Selection. Elegant and dignified, fruity and well balanced. Just at that moment, the salivation begins, I inhale a few more times the wonderfully fruity aromas and now perceive hazelnuts for the first time. Sweetness plays with fruit, the volume increases, the salivation also. Briefly, hints of fresh mint and milk chocolate appear, then the first sip follows.
    • Taste
      Creamy and just "perfect", the first sip flows through the palate. Not overly sweet and fruity, but just delicious and harmonious play apricots, caramel, toffee, oranges, raisins together. Slowly, hazelnuts come off, a wonderful combination of Moroccan mint and eucalyptus spreads around the palate and pulls refreshing through the throat. Herb spicy wood tones come to light, this malt is just delicious and tasty. Slowly begins subtle sharpness, a pinch of pepper envelops the tongue and warms the palate. With hazelnuts and creamy wood tones, taste and aura are blurred.
    • Finish
      Voluminous warmth still rests in the palate, dark and dried berries and fruits stick on the tongue. The distinctive sharpness has almost completely withdrawn, it sticks only a minimal sharp film on the tongue. Dark hazelnuts and old walnuts come to light, spicy wood elements dissolve a barely perceptible smoke. Caramel and milk chocolate float in the saliva, and here too the mouthfeel becomes creamier and oily. Gradually, the aftertaste sounds and leaves nut chocolate on the tongue. Shortly spicy wood tones and dark toffee show again, then the aftertaste sounds with a touch of fresh mint and sapless raisins.
