Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 17-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.57 points

  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Amber rust
    Nose:
    Thin and slightly watered at the beginning, but still good and with an unmistakable Glenfarclas splint: leather, elderberry, old furniture, sherry casks, honey, caramel and malt.
    Taste:
    Spicy, "full-bodied", fruity-woody and underlaid with fine herbs. Raisins, nuts, soft wood, malty honey notes with salt, pepper and hints of hot peppers. Invigorating peppermint joins in, which pleasingly plays.
    Finish:
    Pretty long - the spicy undertone remains here too. Nuts, wood, cardboard, soft herbal notes, a little vanilla and only a little sweetness. The fruit notes run underground here.
    Comment:
    Fat and nice taste despite a thin nose!
