Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

11. Dec 2016
Ah, Glenfarclas! Family-owned distillery, direct-fired stills and this unmistakable, sherry-infused character. Typical fruity sweet Speyside aroma that is full of oranges, apricots and plums with a touch of cinnamon and cloves. A robust nose. The arrival is mouth-watering, measured and zesty. Fresh youthfulness reminds that this Single Malt is only 12 years old, and yet it is full-bodied and rich with dried fruits, raisins and walnuts. A medium finish with Christmas spices, dark chocolate and jelly babies in the aftertaste underscores that this dram is excellent stuff.
RATING: 3.9/5.0 ≙ 87 pts

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.
