  • Excerpt: Coconut and heather join the club with the caramel and cereal. The finish isn't a marathon runner, but it's hardly Usain Bolt.

  • Excerpt: Not sure what to think. It’s very rustic malt whisky, I would say, more rustic than it used to be in any case.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a 12yr old core expression from Glenfarclas - matured in sherry casks.

  • Nose:

    Grapes, sherry and sweet icing sweetness. Some vanilla and spice.

  • Taste:

    Caramel, red fruit. Mostly plumb and grape but there's almost some dark chocolate raspberry in there as well. Some leather, allspice and dark chocolate.

  • Finish:

    Short but simple. Its not trying to be something its not. chocolate, some spice and lots of fruity sherry sweet. I like it.

  • Overall:

    It's no GlenDronach 12, but it doesn't have to be. Its a delicious introduction to the Glenfarclas line all the same.

  • Score:
