Glenfarclas 1993 (bottled 2017), The Family Casks, 59,4%

Review #625
This is from the iconic single cask series “The Family Casks” from Glenfarclas! This is from the 2017 spring release and about 23 years old. It is from a Sherry butt, with the cask no. 3951, and only 536 bottles were made. A bit of everything here in the smell, of what you would expect from an old Glenfarclas. Dried fruits, sweetness, tobacco and old dusted books.

Dark dried fruits at first in the taste. Then some sweet raisins and Christmas cake. The oak influence is great. It is present, but not dominating. The thickness shows in the finish, and notes of dates hangs in the mouth forever. Overall, thick, fat and oily!

Great strength for twenty-something year old whisky! The wood is the best thing about this. Gives loads of flavour, without the oak being a dominating factor in any aspects of the whisky. Very elegant even though it is almost 60%. I will give this 93/100 (23/23/24/23).
