An incredible dram from Glenfarclas, we can't say enough about it. It's a juicy, Christmas cake of a whisky, absolutely huge! This 15 year old matured in sherry wood, a superb malt which earned 95 points from Jim Murray. A lot of the whisky in this is clearly much older than 15 years, this is a really sherried dram and we love it.
Nose: Intense, powerful sherry. Cream sherry, certainly – Pedro Ximenez? almost… a touch of peppermint? An almost rancio quality to this. Smells older than 15.
Palate: Raisins, more sherry, orange peel, walnuts, dates
Finish: Incredibly long, complex, more of the Walnuts again.
Overall: Water draws out sweetness. This is Christmas cake, not whisky. Simply astonishing.
