Glenfarclas 25 yo (bottled 2016), 43 %

Review #328
This is from Sherry casks, just as we know Glenfarclas. Fruity and notes of oak in the smell, but also notes of grass and hay. Not very powerful and the flavors don’t come rushing in. You have to sit and carefully smell your way through the layers. Different types of sweet marmalade is lies behind it all.

The taste is a bit more powerful but nothing overwhelming. Very lightly peated and a bit salty. Some oranges as well. Some vanilla is coming forward in the finish alongside some gentle oak. The fruity touch is the main character though.

This is just incredible smooth. Maybe a bit too smooth and gentle, but you can notice incredible amounts of flavors if you take your time with this whisky! A great dram at a fantastic price. I will rate this 88/100 (21/22/22/23).
