Family-owned distillery, direct-fired stills and this unmistakable sherry-infused style - what's not to like about Glenfarclas? Light, sweet and fruity, the aroma kicks off with oranges, apricots and unripe banana, followed by shortbread, allspice and vegetal notes. The arrival is zesty, sparkling and reminiscent of Fanta. Water tames the initial roughness of the spirit, revealing dried fruits, pineapple and menthol. Dark chocolate, peppery spices and gummy bears fade in the medium finish. It's still a bargain for a 12-year-old, although not as robust as it used to be.

Comment: Best Speyside I’ve tasted. Hits you hard with the sherry cask flavors: dried orchard fruit, oak, leather, spices. Very rich and bold flavors yet it’s very approachable. Reminds me a LOT of Pussers rum—which is called the single malt of rums.
