Glenfarclas 15 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
One of the great malt whiskies on the market and a great example of a sherry matured whisky. Glenfarclas mature their single malt almost exclusively in sherry oak casks giving it its characteristic fruit cake notes.
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.
