Glenfarclas Springs (bottled 2014), 46 %

Review #377
From the series ”The Legend of Speyside” for the German market, containing the three expressions “Team”, “Passion” and “Springs”. Only 6000 bottles of each were made. Dried fruits in the smell. Raisins and prunes. Not much sweetness though.

Dried fruits, coffee and oak in the taste. Some sugary sweetness as well. Spices, especially black pepper, at first in the finish. Great mix with the fruits. The sweetness is quite pleasant all the way through, without being dominant.

There is actually quite many things going on in this dram, but it never really gets to the point. It is a fine dram, but it just need that little extra something to take it to the next level. I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
