The nose offers off-sweet sherry with light smokiness and spice, continuing to develop and offering honey, vanilla and pear aromas. There's more sherry sweetness and delicate smokiness on the palate, with dainty hints of dried fruit and cinnamon. Long on the finish with lingering spiciness, this smooth single malt belies its age.
About the Producer
Glenfarclas produce outstanding malts and in an unusually wide variety of ages. Experienced tasters usually place them in the top three or four from this most distinguished district. The Glenfarclas malts are at the heftier end of the Speyside line-up, though they are not the very heaviest.
The Glenfarclas malts are the strong, silent type: tall, dark and handsome, notably firm bodied, but willing to reveal a sweet side to their nature. They are excellent company at any time and especially after dinner.
Glenfarclas means “valley of the green grass”. The distillery is about a mile from the Spey, beyond which the heather-covered hills rise toward Ben Rinnes from which the distillery’s water flows.
