Scotland > Speyside > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Glenfarclas
No matter how you look at it, this is an excellent value for a 21 year old single malt whisky! Bottled at 43%, this mystery "Highland" (we suspect it is actually Glenfarclas from the Speyside)!
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: stewed fruits, chocolate covered espresso beans, soft leather and plum pudding; cooked medjool dates with prune and grapefruit juices; some musty earthy tones and classic Christmas cake sherry tones.
Palate: round, fruity and chocolaty with building earthy sherry notes and spices; more milk-chocolate covered espresso beans, soft leather and musty old dunnage warehouse tones; nutty and a touch grassy; raisins, dates, figs and prunes with crisp spices: licorice, fennel and clove.
Finish: medium length with big coating sherry notes and drying fruity tannins;
Comment: quite sherried, but not a sherry bomb; a lovely malt at a good price for its age; possibly from the Ballindalloch Estate!
Producer Tasting Note
Nose: Delicate well-mannered whisky, freshly peeled green apple skin dipped into light, creamy chocolate sauce.
Palate: Balanced with stewed fruit, nuts, toffee and caramel all coming through in equal quantity to each other
Finish: Long finish that keeps on going giving off sherry aromas and that feeling of biting into a toffee apple sweet and that crunch of fresh fruit.
Origins: From the Highlands of Scotland
