Nosing:
Tempting sherry-sweet malty tones combine with delicate smokiness, releasing subtle spices. Warming the glass reveals honey, vanilla and pear drops.
Taste:
Delicately light, with a mouth-watering combination of maltiness, smokiness and sherry sweetness. Hints of dried fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves tempt the taste buds further.
Finish:
Long, smooth and spicy, with a delicious, yet delicate, lingering smokiness.

Finish: Sweet Honey Caramel

Comment: I bought a bottle of Glenfarclas 10 just to see if it was as "bad" as some reviews I've seen on it. Wow! Were THEY ever wrong! This 10 has a really great nose, and a nice spicy flavor for a "relatively" young dram at 10 y/o, and a very smooth finish. At somewhere in the 40s Euro/Dollar/Pound range, it's a very nice dram. Dangerous because it's so "lively" yet smooth!
