Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1991

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.07 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Delicious sherry garnets - more sherry is gone and it remains whisky. Notes from blind tasting.
    • Nose
      deep red fruits - smashed raspberries, sour cherries, young balsamic with a bit of acidity, plum jam with cinnamon, incredibly oily fat sweetness wafting through the glass, grape seeds, burned match meets freshly ground coffee and cocoa, strong vanilla, some mint, dark oak - sweetness and Acid change frequently - the acid is more in the foreground for me
    • Taste
      Spicy on the nose, lots of peppery aromatic oak - very intense, chocolate, espresso, fresh mint and sweet cherries - sour raspberries, light tingles - a dose of herbs and spices, it is getting creamier in the mouth, fruits and oak are gaining more and more balance - beautiful complex interwoven - tastes old but at the same time freshly fruity and very intense - the longer you chew, the darker the chocolate, softly sparkles sulfur
    • Finish
      medium to long, creamy with a medium dryness, slightly astringent, spicy, mint and pepper are very long on the tongue

  4. robbert88 scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    A thick enough. But not worth repeating.

    Duration does not always mean better.

  5. M134481 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A nice balance between sweet, draft and coffee and mocha. I have not had these flavors before. It's a shame about the purchase price, but I like to have this at home.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sherry, grass and red fruit at the first moment.
      After the bottle is open, I smell coffee, a strong mocha smell with hints of oranges.

      The nose pricks slightly through the ABV.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sherry, coffee and mocha. But wow, what a nice taste! What a nice balance between these taste notes! Sugar sweeten in oily liquid.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sherry and wood. Followed by coffee, mocha and oranges. Sugar and grass clippings adhere to, but the strongest taste remains that of the sherry.

  6. Kalleholzbein scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful mild sherry nose, slightly sweetish with herbs, harmonious, no alcohol. The 57.6% have quite a lot of power in their mouth! The alcohol is well integrated. Again light sweetness and herbs. Long, powerful finish. Very good whisky, you can recommend if you are on bar.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    An exceptional cask indeed.
    • Nose
      Dried fig, plum jam, cherry, caramel, honey and a little oak.
    • Taste
      Plum jam, dried fig, mocha, cherry, honey and an oaky, somewhat herbal, spiciness.
    • Finish
      Plum, cherry, caramel, mocha and chestnut.
