  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Thick sherry, brown sugar, grape/cherry cola, roasted nuts, dried fruits like raisins and cranberries, with light soy sauce. I like it slightly better with water, even though it's actually quite balanced at 60% ABV. Thank you, Bill, for opening this gem for our annual meeting.

    There are quite many 40year-ish super high quality Glenfarclases around with price and availability allowing to get a sample here and there. This one's price is far beyond them and I'am really curious if the malt itself justifies (for lack of a better word..) it.
    • Nose
      98 98
      Absolutely stunning! comparing to Norse Cask or 41 yo 1968 vintage it is not as red wine'ish,elegant and dark but it is rather going for fruitbomb side of things. Very dense, very intense, powerful, deep, loooots of sweetness and fruits, so many laeyers of exotic flavours, I think its the very best smell I felt in Gelenfarclas malt... and it is one of my favourite distilleries.. just stunning!!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Fantastic sweetness/sourness balance, punchy it is but for a 105 proof its amazingly smooth, absoluteluy amazing!! So many citrus fruits - my favourites - Maybe just a little bit too woody but still flawless, fruity and extremely enjoyable!! and I do not want to add water which is magnificent with this ABV!
    • Finish
      96 96
      very long, strong, intense - full of oranges and grapefruits, wood, spices, very sweet, amazing!!

      After all I need to admit - this is the best Glenfarclas I tasted so far... not as elegant as some of other but extremely matches my personal taste- with its citrus character, great intensity and complexity out of this world!!

    But 95 for palate & finish average.
    The Macallan 1952 probably would have come 2nd if the nose had scored similar to the palate and finish, it would be unfair to push it any further down the pecking order and it was, along with the Glen Cawdor 1964 the only whisky I gave a 96p for the palate. It is where it is because the nose let it down and had a burnt off note I did not like but the taste was lovely.

    Perfect sherry cask - this is on eye level with the best sherry whiskies I had so far like the Springbank 1966 443 - extremely complex and really flawless, no way that this is 60% abv, really exceeds my highest expectations - just flabbergasting and fantastic!
    • Nose
      98 98
      Very intense, powerful, truck loads of dried fruits, plums, prune, figs, you name it, also lots of cooked stuff, cooked oranges, strawberry, raisins, acacia honey, nutmeg, cloves, even some rhum sucked cherries, brown sugar, molasses, heavy sherry wood, whiffs of vanilla, chocolate, I could go on forever - superb!
    • Taste
      99 99
      Punchy, oily, creamy, mellow, good sweetness, liquorice, more dried fruits, more cooked oranges as well, more milk chocolate, toffee, more heavy sherry notes but really no off notes (no rubber, leather etc.), more spices, fine tobacco, and much more - delicious!

    To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first bottling of Glenfarclas 105 Cask
    Strength single Highland malt, the family-owned Speyside distillery has issued a
    limited edition release of 40-year-old ?Glenfarclas 105.? According to
    Glenfarclas, ?The first commercially available cask strength whisky of the
    modern age was born in 1968 when George S Grant, the fourth generation of the
    Grant family to own and manage Glenfarclas, bottled a single cask straight from
    the warehouse, and sent the bottles to family and friends as Christmas gifts.
    With only a couple of casks of the right style, age, and strength available, the
    Glenfarclas 105 Aged 40 Years truly is a limited edition. There are only 893
    bottles available.? A big nose of Sherry and marzipan. Water releases more
    floral and caramel notes. Powerful yet elegant on the palate, with dry Sherry,
    raisins, walnuts and allspice. Drying steadily in the finish, with liquorice and
    hints of pipe tobacco. Ultimately becoming very dry and moreish.

    [September, 2018] To end this year's Glenfarclas challenge I selected this very special release. It was very pricey when released in 2008 (compared to the average whisky prices ten years ago) and not many people bought a bottle - that is why George Grant offered some additional goodies for the buyer of such a bottle during a promotional tasting that I attended in Germany, namely: A dinner for two persons at the Glenfarclas distillery and ten (!) drams of The Family Casks vintages of your choice (again for two persons). I thought now this is a good deal and bought a bottle (with his signature) for 500 Eurobucks (exactly my spending limit for a single bottle of whisky). I still own his voucher and I hope I can cash it in during my upcoming visit at the distillery (I do not insist on the dinner but on the ten old The Family Casks drams, for sure)…

    ...and by the way: This whisky itself is worth the 500 Euro (but not the 3000+ bucks of today's weird price level). It is a powerful yet elegant sherried 'farclas without any flaw that I like best when undiluted. A flabbergasting dram with still 60% abv after 40 years of maturation, no punchiness at all but a perfect harmony of aromas and flavours instead. Extremely quaffable, if you own deep pockets...
    • Nose
      94 94
      The colour is mahogany and the nose offers a subtle and delicate old style sherry profile without any punchiness despite the 105 proof. After some time of breathing and warming (never forget to warm any dram to about body temperature with your hands to release all aromas, finally) it opens up greatly and shows a truly complex nose without a single off-note. I never thought a 60% abv dram could offer such an impressive nose even undiluted. Great stuff!
    • Taste
      95 95
      The taste is nicely layered and chewable on a flawless old school sherry profile that is in balance with wonderful malty flavours of the Glenfarclas spirit. The wood is perfect: strong enough to provide a firm backbone and structure to all other flavours but never dominating or with bitter-astringent notes.
    • Finish
      93 93
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and instantly coats the whole of the mouth with a creamy feeling and no distracting moments (what again is flabbergasting for a 105 proof spirit). The finish is long and adds more chocolatey and spicy flavours what is a real treat in this combination. A minor drying moment pops up towards the end that is not distracting at all. Some water releases more aromas in the nose and flavours on the palate but be careful not to add too much because the dram flattens quickly (to a nevertheless very delicious level but it looses the "special kick" of the sheer power of the 105).

    It's incredible at the age of 40 this is 60% ABV, but doesn't feel the alcohol. An excellent oloroso base, it handles the character and the depth of the distillery very beautiful. Great whisky.

    H2H with this KZ

    The nose of the Glenfarclas is more delicate than the KZ and it is more vibrant also but I actually notice a slight bitterness this time that I never noticed before.

    The bitterness soon goes on the GF with some peat creeping in but its basically more fireworks on the palate but on the whole the Karuizawa has more body and a little more depth of profile.

    I think the KZ wins this scrap by a whisker so I will revers my original scores meaning 94p for the GF and 95 for the KZ.

  11. lincolnimp scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    I did put this at 96 but settled on 95 as after the water there was a little bitterness but this is a beautiful sherried whisky. Gets extra marks for the depth of profile and how refined it is at 60% which really caught me by surprise. I am not a sherry head yet I think this is possibly the best sherried whisky I have tried.

    Water is not needed, unbelievable but I will give it a go.

    With water :-

    Very little change on the palate with 4 drops of water just perhaps a little nutmeg and now touches of cinnamon.

    The palate is a little more restrained but the flavours just keep on coming, as before just the strength of the flavours has actually increased, the water has opened things up very nicely and now with water for the first time it shows its age, the wood makes an appearance but for me adds to the experience.
    • Nose
      Old books, mulled wine, full bodied red wine, red wine jus,  blackberry, red currant jelly.
    • Taste
      Very, very rich on the palate, creamy, full bodied but nowhere near as explosive as you would imagine at 60% like the usual 105.  Forrest fruits, blackberry, black cherry, dark ginger cake, a little black treacle, mulled wine spices, hints of orange and rich dark fudge, I think you get the picture. I also detect some peat in with the spice.
    • Finish
      Long, very smooth, rich but not over rich with spicy tail.

    Punchy raisin and sherriness with soft spices, clove, cinnamon and
    plums interplay with refine wood. Hints of burnt turf and butter
    derived from the strength, not unpleasant but added much depth to the
    tempting aroma.

    P- Well balance at high strength, backed by
    solid and concentrated flavours, vanilla, dark fruits custard, soft
    spices, dry and resinous. Well integrated with amicable fluency.

    This 40-year-old version of Glenfarclas 105 was bottled to mark the 40th anniversary of the original bottling in 1968. The ruby-red color leads to a peppery nose with figs, toffee, Christmas Cake, and a hint of honey. The taste is fruity and intensely spicy with a good burn and notes of dried figs, sherry, toffee, cinnamon, and ginger. The finish is long with cinnamon and pepper notes that fade slowly. Adding a few drops of water brings out notes of orange and mango on the palate. An amazing whisky!

    I was lucky enough to find this in a bar, taste it and take a sample home for further enjoyment. As expected a superb sherried whisky, lots of dried fruit, chocolate with some sweats and a hint of citrus in the mix. Excellent!

    Glenfarclas 40 yo '105' (60%, OB, 893 bottles, 2008)

    From two casks bottled in 2008 to commemorate the first regular '105' that came out in 1968.

    Colour: amber.

    Nose: oh, I didn’t know this baby was that great! I should have tried it sooner… A complex, rich but very elegant sherriness, blending oranges, sultanas, milk chocolate and the most subtle notes of cinnamon and other spices. It really reminds me of some high-end mulled wine, maybe mulled wine made with some Hermitage Chapelle 1978? (the horror!) Seriously, it’s a fabulous nose so far. High-end chocolate.

    With water: fa-bu-lous development on many herbs and spices. Sultry but not heavy at all and very complex. Amazing.

    Mouth (neat): extraordinarily good! Stunning resinous and sappy attack, much more nervous than expected, more citrusy than other old Glenfarclasses. And many herbs and many spices… Only the high power is slightly ‘too much’ for this sissy of a taster so I’m eager to add a few drops of water to this utter beauty.

    With water: exceptional! Please call the anti-maltoporn brigade! Hundreds of candied fruits and thousands of
    herbs. And an amazing ‘ vibrancy’.

    Finish: long, big, penetrating. Endless – warning, it’ll kill your tasting session, which is what just happened here at WF Towers.

    Comments: only one regret, not to have tried this one when it came out in 2008. What an utter sherried beauty! Vattings of two or three casks are often more complex than single casks, as we already found out several times with Mr. Samaroli’s old bottlings, for instance. Or when mixing the remnants of a wee tasting session. This 40-105 is another perfect example!

    This seems to like being experimented with water on. For me unfortunately a bit too much on bitter notes & wood (but, this seems to get less extreme after an hour... I might need to do another few runs, if I find another sample). If you like candied/glazed citrus fruit & rind (citronat/succade), you'll love this.
    • Nose
      first of: a lot of (dark) chocolate truffles, some forrest earth (moss, old leaves, dark earth, faint mushrooms), aceton, (93)
      a bit later: aceton disappears quickly, still a lot of dark chocolate, but also a whole bag of wet/juicy dried fruits (raisins, plums, ), also blackberries & forrest strawberries (the tiny ones), still some deep earthy notes, some old wood (a few antiques as well as rotting/forrest wood notes ),also very faint coal smoke,  (95)
      A bit later again: still very earthy & chocolat-y/, but turning somewhat dusty & a tad greener with some mint leaves that come into play as well now, (94)
      Later: nougat, powdered sugar, old rum, a sprinkle of beeswax, (94)
      W water: (italian) candied/glazed fruits seem to be dominating now & a tad grassy, lost most of it's earthy- & woody-ness, turning waxern & somwhat meaty, but also a tad metallic,  (91)
    • Taste
      old rum, a lot of oak, some dark chocolate, some candied/glazed fruits, spices (cinnamon, cloves), mercurochrome, but turning quite woody & some bitter notes. (90)
      W water: quite bitter, (italian) candied/glazed fruits although mostly lemon & orange rind now, has the waxyness of candied lemon rind as well, quite smoky, very sparkly on the tongue (88)
    • Finish
      oak is noticable, slightly bitter echoes, chocolate, licorice, moss, plum sauce, tea, faint cloves, and more of those candied citrus fruits. (92)
      W water: more candied fruit bitterness, some burnt sugar/caramel, funky drying up oilyness at the end. (87)

    Here`s what I found on the Glenfarclas site:‘In 1968, my father, George S Grant, decided to bottle a cask of Glenfarclas at natural strength as a Christmas gifts for family and friends. The strength of that single cask was 105° British Proof – and Glenfarclas 105 was born. We still select some of the finest casks from our warehouses and vat them together – without adding water – to give a constant strength of 60%. And today, Glenfarclas 105, the world’s first commercially available cask strength whisky, is just as smooth as ever.

    To celebrate its 40th anniversary, we have created this special bottling of Glenfarclas 105 at 40 Years Old. With only a couple of casks of the right style, age, and strength available, it truly is a limited edition. In fact, there are only 893 bottles in total.

    The 40th Anniversary Limited Edition is dark and mysterious in colour, with a beautifully sweet nose, and hints of toffee and sherry. A sip reveals a powerful, yet smooth and elegant whisky, with liquorice flavours, and fruit. In short, all the great flavours of Glenfarclas in one extraordinary dram.’

    The 105 Aged 40 Years is a vatting from the following two casks; 1 Sherry Butt, cask no. 3860 1 Sherry Butt, cask no. 3862 Both were filled at 114.6 proof or 65,4% abv. Filling at receiver strength was done initially as a result of shortage of warehouse space and also due to a shortage of casks. The whisky remained strong, partly due to being filled at receiver strength, and partly due to warehousing. We have only lost around 5% of the strength mainly due to very good quality casks in the beginning plus the influence of our traditional dunnage warehouses which are cool with a moist atmosphere all year round."Comments by Laird Of Islay
