Glenfarclas 21 Years

This exceptional single malt is among the cheapest of all 21-year-old malt whiskeys. It contains more smoke than other Glenfarclas. But in comparison only a subtle touch. The sherry taste takes a back seat in favor of oak, vanilla and fruits.

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.
