  • Distiller:

    Glenfarclas

  • Bottler:

    Glenfarclas

  • ABV:

    58.6%

  • Age:

    15 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a 15 year cask strength release from Glenfarclas. It is from a cask selected by the Whiskey Exchange. It is 103 proof "In the old money".

  • Nose:

    Vanilla, melon, apple, buttercream, butter scotch, ethanol. This definitely refill sherry, many time refilled and boasts a lot of sweet, fruity undertones.

  • Taste:

    Thick , hot. vanilla, caramel, toffee, floral fruits, apples and pears, mild sherry. There's a bit more fruity sweetness here and a little more sherry character but the heat is undeniable and a little overbearing.

  • Finish:

    Long, some heat, vanilla, sulfur, apples and pears. There's some roughness here and a bit of sulfur undertone that wasn't apparent in the palate. It isn't super noteworthy, but all the same, it's there.

  • Overall:

    I liked this expression but found it a bit hot and unbalanced. I can only dream of what this would be like after another 5-8 years in the cask, but I bet it would smooth out some of the rough edges here.

  • Score:

    6
