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

Very rich sherry flavours carress nose and palate and give you a feeling of laid-back luxury, only the finish is not quite on par. – Rating: 88/100

Some very strong sherry flavours dominate this malt, the spice notes on top of that are nothing for the faint of heart. – Rating: 86/100

A delicious but rather dry bottling of Glenfarclas, the fruitiness of younger expressions has given way to an almost savoury character. – Rating: 88/100

A wonderfully rich sherried malt that combines youthful freshness with maturity. – Rating: 86/100

Glenfarclas 1966/2011 For Nth Las Vegas

July 2, 2012

Quite an unusual flavour profile for this’ Gingerbread Glenafarclas’, the nose is wonderful, but the palate does not quite reach that level. – Rating: 85/100

Glenfarclas Premium Edition 1993/2011

Because of its somewhat sour elements this was the least favourite whisky of the Scotch blind tasting competition. Not really a bad one, but not really ‘premium’ either. – Rating: 83/100

Glenfarclas 2002/2011

May 18, 2012

A very nice sherry bomb, still a bit youthful around the edges, but rich in flavours and well-balanced. – Rating: 86/100

Simply magnificent. Most of these bottles are offered to investors. But anyone buying this bottle to increase their wealth by a few bucks misses out on a once-in-a-liftetime opportunity. If you can afford this whisky, please drink it! – Rating: 95/100

The palate can’t quite keep up with the fabulous nose, but this is still a very fine young sherry monster for an affordable price. – Rating: 85/100

Glenfarclas 1970/1999

August 6, 2011

This very rich malt has to be savoured drop by drop. There are a lot of flavours to explore, but it’s a bit too woody to break the 90 point barrier. – Rating: 89/100

Glenfarclas 40 yo

One the one hand this a typical old-fashioned and luxurious sherry whisky, but the flavours also bear some resemblances to aged bourbons. A fantastic dram with an almost incredible complexity at an unbeatable price for a 40 year old. – Rating: 92/100

A great young sherry monster at a budget price. It’s not the most complex malt on the planet, but it is extremely enjoyable nonetheless. – Rating: 85/100

Glenfarclas 15 yo

Quite a dry sherry dram with rich aromas and a full body. The barrel char smokiness of the finish is almost a little too strong, though. – Rating: 85/100

Glenfarclas Vintage 1989/2002

August 17, 2010

A very complex and richly flavoured malt but the finish does not quite live up to other Glenfarclasses I have tried. But that’s just complaining on a very high level because it is still a very good whisky. – Rating: 86/100

Glenfarclas 1987 Quarter Casks

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

Wonderfully rich and creamy, a perfect mix of fruit and spice. – Rating: 88/100

Long, fruity and slightly spicy, fading into a suprising smokiness
Overall: A very nice inexpensive but yet intense sheried malt. – Score: 83/100

Glenfarclas 1996/2008 Sherry

August 17, 2009

The nose is really impressive but the palate can’t cope. There is not much to be found in this whisky. Still a nice dram, but not more. – Score: 78/100
