  • Distiller:

    Glenfarclas

  • Bottler:

    Single Cask Nation

  • ABV:

    59.5%

  • Age:

    9 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of distillate produced at Glenfarclas and bottled by Single Cask Nation. It is a blend of two Oloroso matured casks, with a 9 year age statement. It is bottled without coloring or filtering, at cask strength.

  • Nose:

    Rich fig, sherry and pepper. Sweet honey, tart raspberry and a nice creaminess.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich mouth feel. Some heat, a bit more than I was expecting for the proof. Lots of honey, fig, cocoa and pepper. Then the sulfur kicks up, along with some savory oak and leather.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium in length, but with a searing heat. A bit hotter than Id like, and likely due to the youth, in my opinion. Lots of honey, pepper, currants and figs here along with some light oak presence.

  • Overall:

    I liked this, but it was a bit heavy on the ethanol and sulfur for me.

  • Score:

    5
