Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Speyside Whisky
Age: 15 year old Whisky
At 15 years old, this bottling is starting to show the more complex and mature style the Glenfarclas distillery is renowned for - light butterscotch, dried fruit and an big oak and sherry character are mingled with hints of malted barley and a touch of dry peat smoke. The finish is long, with Christmas cake spices lingering on the palate, making for a complex and richly satisfying single malt.
Nose: Intense, powerful sherry. Cream sherry, certainly – Pedro Ximenez? almost… a touch of peppermint? An almost rancio quality to this. Smells older than 15.
Palate: Raisins, more sherry, orange peel, walnuts, dates.
Finish: Incredibly long, complex, more of the Walnuts again.
