This is a near cask strength release from Glenfarclas, bearing a 10yr age statement. Some batches don't have this age statement, this one does.
Lots of sherry fruit with a wisp of spice.
Sherry and spice. There's a bit tiny bit of an artificial note followed by sweet fruit and leather. It's a bit hot on the tongue, but for 120 proof, its not punishing.
Long and a little hotter than I'd like but by no means unreasonable. There's more sherry followed by some spice and a bit of rubber/char which seems odd but it fits with the profile well.
Very good dram for the price here in the US. Not as cheap as our overseas brethren but with the age statement and proof, I have zero regrets. Glenfarclas has gone 2/2 in my book and I'm looking forward to reviewing the Faultline, 17 and 24 in my upcoming reviews. Yum.
