  1. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Oh herje, that's a heavy number,
    It is not too old, but it is too impetuous and disorganized in my nose, the fine mild taste has brought me out of the concept, but I thought I overrun the strength of cask strength, instead sessile sherry and oak flavors with citrus and fine creamy finish.

    The tip is now completely in the blue: 43-46% (despite perceptible alcohol), 12 years, sherry barrel, Glenfarclas
    • Nose
      ---- ---- blind tasting


      Sherry and clear wood in the first nose, something tells me that I know that or at least the distillery, but I can not get it (Glenfarclas?). The nose says cask strength and in the first thought quite old age, tanned reader, old wood and spice combines with the sherry, increasingly I get into pondering because of the age. The alcohol stings something, the whole Matl is quite stormy, a bit restless .. too restless for a great age,
      Sherry, wood and subtle glue / solvent red, orange, citron, caramel, not particularly complex.
      The second nose brings forth citrus and sherry in combination with caramel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Very mild start for what I expected, sherry, oranges, chocolate, fresh Zitruslastigkeit, already clear oak, subtle caramel, light tobacco and leather aromas, relatively dry spicy
    • Finish
      first caramel and oak-accented before sherry fruits and raisins combine, medium-long and again mellow finish with nuts in the finish and a beautiful combination of creamy chocolate and citrus fruit
