Excerpt: The palate is broad and balanced, with real sweetness and a tongue-coating quality which softens to dried fruit, earthy density, with a whiff of smoke. Redolent with the aroma of a dunnage warehouse. A class act.

This is a 17yr expression from Glenfarclas' core line of age stated products.
Sugary sherry, light fruit and sherry spice notes. There's a little vanilla and cream. Oddly reminiscent of the 12.
Light, complex sherry fruits, some syrupy sugar and figs and plums. Mild spice.
Medium. Nothing spectacular here but its still delicious. Lots of sweet sherry and a mild bit of zip and spice.
Compared to the 12, this is much better but not a knock out of the park like I was expecting. I like it though, and Glenfarclas fails to disappoint again. It really goes to show the complexity that refill sherry can introduce to a dram.
