Glenfarclas Coronation 1953/2013 Speciality Drinks

by Oliver Klimek on September 16, 2013


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Initially a strong whiff of orange flower oil, giving way to polished old oak, leather, candied tropical fruit, light fudge and nutmeg, all wrapped into magnificent rancio notes.
Palate: Candied oranges take the lead, dried apricots and white raisins follow, hints of mango, light honey, creme brulee, espresso, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper as well as some tannins.
Finish: Very long and fruity with a dry spiciness.
Overall: An amazing very old Glenfarclas with a fantastic fruitiness underlined by aromatic spices. It has a bit of a wood bite but this does not detract from the glorious aromas that can be found in this whisky.

Rating: 94/100 – Price Tag $$$$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

i doubt any whisky geek would ever rate such a whisky under 90.

it’s all psychological i assume. (me too)

This one would stick out in a blind tasting as well.
