Glenfarclas-1995

Glenfarclas, 1995, Sherry Hogsheads

Picked as the best of 6 whiskies in a Glenfarclas tasting. Tons of sherry then vanilla, spices and syrups which linger for ages. It’s highly more-ish on its own but at 60.1% it sits comfortably with a splash and of water. A really lovely dram for special occasions.

Nose: Lots and lots of toffee and butter fudge in a rich caramelised aroma.

Palate: The flavour is much more herbaceous and floral and provides a pleasing contrast to this dram’s aroma.

Finish: Caramel, elderflower and violets in a marriage of nose and palate.

Overall: This is a whisky of two parts and although different they harmonise exquisitely.

Nose: Sweet sea breeze is well complemented by light, fruity wine notes (think strawberries and raspberries and you’ll be on the right track).

Palate: Smoky peat and yet more berries. Ought to be a good late summer whisky we reckon.

Finish: Remains smoky on the finish.
