  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A Glenfarclas who likes it quite a bit. Like the last 1996er.
    • Nose
      slightly sweet on the nose, but also slightly tart, grape seeds, light fruit with fruit acid, apples and pears, old leather, roasted aromas, quite dry
    • Taste
      oily mouthfeel, the fruits become riper and darker, nuts, hanuta, roasted nuts, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      the hanuta is getting more intense with some apple peel

  2. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts wonderfully dense, colplex and ripe. Creamy maltiness, almost trifle-like and orange cream. Later also dried figs, raisins, almonds, cocoa dust and the typical for Glenfaclas seasoning. After some time Muscobadozucker follow, over ripe plums, raspberries, Hutzelbirnen, oak and forest honey. Insegsamt very nicely put together!
    • Taste
      Spicy start with oak, dry sherry, some pepper, allspice, dried fruit and ginger cake. Later also grassy notes, ground walnuts, dark chocolate and leather.
    • Finish
      Long and wonderfully full. Sherrytönig, trail mix, hazelnut and almond.
