Glenfarclas 105

Paid: $85 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Glenfarclas

Region: Highlands

60% ABV

Aged For: At least 8 years (and likely close to that)

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Cask Type: Sherry casks

Chill Filtered: No

Color Added: No

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

 


 

Color: Dark Copper

Nose: Caramel, fudge, sherry, sultanas, orange zest, dark chocolate and the alcohol lets it’s proof be known.

Taste: Tangerine, fruit cake, cherry, more chocolate, vanilla and woody oak. Viscous and coats the palate.

Finish: Very warm, but not burning. Vanilla, figs, ginger and a bit of cracked pepper.

Thoughts: Not as fruity as the Nadurra oroloso, and it Doesn’t have hit the same Christmas spice notes that A’bundah has going on. If I were to tag this cask strength sherry bomb it would be balanced compared to the other two.

Score: 87 out of 100
