A beautiful rich caramel colour that looks perfect in your glass.
A rich whisky with a powerful sherry nose, followed by floral honey sweetness. Also some peat smoke coming through to give the whisky some burnt wood on the nose.
Light oaky flavours emerge with this whisky, which has beautiful sherry flavours shining through it. Tastes nothing like you would imagine for such an old whisky. Allow the whisky some time to wake up in your glass and, after a while, some nice earthy tones develop, reminding you where it has been for more than half a century.
The variety of flavours is suprising for such an old whisky, the finish is just what you would expect from a great Glenfarclas.
