    • Nose
      This is from the year Glenfarclas experimented with steam heating the stills, instead of using direct fire. The lightest in color of this quintet, it is invitingly fresh at first, but also has a sugar-y sweetness to it, as well as earthy and tobacco-esque notes. Unconventional, but highly enjoyable.
    • Taste
      Well, if I didn't know any better, I would say this is lightly peated. It certainly tastes as such. Very interesting. Some menthol notes too, as well as tobacco, white pepper and cumin. A subtle touch of bitter oak, this is certainly well-matured. Lacks a certain fruitiness, but still offers enough depth.
    • Finish
      Lingers on earthy notes, as well as more oak. Pretty long.

    No typical Glenfarclas; smoky variant. Fruity. Great discovery!
