Glenfarclas 40 year old
Glenfarclas is one of those distilleries that just gets better with age. The 40 year old is an outstanding whisky, one that needs to be tried at least once by every enthusiast. It has recently been repackaged, and they have done a great job.
Rich oak, sweet sherry and dark chocolate initially on the nose. Warming spices with sticky fruit cake and treacle follow. The palate is full and rounded. Sweet meets spice as this single malt reminds you of being sat in front of the fire at Christmas. A long, oak sweet finish with a slight earthy note.
