Glenfarclas 1987 Quarter Casks

by Oliver Klimek on July 1, 2010

18 yo – 46%


My Tasting Notes:


Colour:
Rich amber
Nose:
Prunes in Armagnac, chocolate, hints of tobacco, oak and old leather.
Palate:
Dry, orange zest, ripe berries, nutmeg and many many more.
Finish:
Very long and dry, with a whiff of smoke at the end.
Overall:
I like it just as much as the  Glenfarclas 17 , but it is very different. The gorgeous fruitiness of the 17yo is replaced by a tightly woven network of complex but subtle flavours that make this whisky a delight to enjoy drop by drop. There is a distinct woody dryness but it is not overpowering the other flavours.

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