Whiskyreview #14 Glenfarclas 12yo 43%

Bottled for travel retail only(I think). imageMatured in ex-sherry casks. Let’s see what this relatively famous speysider has to offer.

Nose: leather, canned peaches and cinnamon. Add some water, and you’ll get cinnamonbuns and butter. Bananas and chocolate on a bonfire(if you’ve never had that, you should. It’s delicious). Chillinuts, plums, baked beans and a hint of coconut milk.

Palate, heavy sherry notes. Dried fruit, raisins, bananas, apricots and stewed plums. Very full bodied. Some spice coming through, cinnamon and thyme. Even some hints of Urge in this, the softdrink that is. Whipped cream and almonds. Certainly has a nuttyness to it. Walnuts and pine nuts. Delicious indeed.

A very straight forward and honest sherried single malt, that is well worth the cash you pay at dutyfree.

87/100 points
