Glenfarclas 17 yo

by Oliver Klimek on June 11, 2010


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Grapes, raisins, hints of leather and tobacco.
Palate: Honey, raisins, orange zest, some lemon, clove and nutmeg
Finish: Long and fruity with aromatic spices.
Overall: Wonderfully rich and creamy, a perfect mix of fruit and spice.

Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Hey Oliver, have you tried the Glenfarclas 12yo and 105? If so how would you compare the 17yo to these? Better/not as good/different? I’m thinking of getting a bottle.

I haven’t tried the 12yo, and the 105 I had several years ago, so I can’t really make a honest comparison. But let me tell you that I recently bought another bottle of the 17yo which tasted not quite as fruity and was not quite as brilliant overall as the one I sampled for this tasting not (but still very nice). My new bottle has the barcode on the bottom of the back label while the first one had it sideways on the left of the label.
