If you are looking for an older, substantial Single Malt that is not outrageously expensive, consider Glenfarclas 21. Intense fruitiness, green apples, gooseberries and hints of pineapple dominate the nose. Fresh herbs, heather honey and faint smoke of 'burned stuff' linger in the background, adding a pleasant complexity. The age of this malt shows in the taste: heavy cask influence with wood spices and tannins combines with fruits and vanilla, culminating in a lasting, nutty and slightly dry finish. A Speysider with depth and character for more sophisticated palates.

Nosing: Green Apple Orange Sherry Vanilla Mint
Up front fruitiness, oranges and apples. Well integrated sherry. Some vanilla and a definite menthol note.

Taste: Fruit Oak Sherry
Full balanced arrival. Intense dried fruit and sherry, sweet and sour. More of that background sherry.

Finish: Oak Malt
Medium to long with malty oak.

Comment:
I'm conflicted on this one. It has a really nice nose, but I think it sort of lets itself down a bit. Its not overly interesting on the palate or finish, though what it does it does well. I think that considering the price I would probably say I'd be more likely to pick the 15 year old over this. A bit of an anomaly because I normally don't have a bad word to say about Glenfarclas.
