Glenfarclas 25

Glenfarclas 25

I was actually surprised to find out a pit of peat is used in the malt with this one.

Price: $160 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Glenfarclas

Region: Highland

43% ABV

Aged For: 25 Years

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Cask Type: Ex-bourbon and first-fill sherry casks

Chill Filtered: No

Color Added: No

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

 


 

Color: Amber

Nose: Apples, raisin, caramel and fudge. Light and fresh, vanilla, white grape jam.

Taste: Sherry and oak with just a hint of smoke and white pepper. Almond butter, ginger. Neither watery or thick.

Finish: Smokey oak, butter, chocolate, of medium length and warmth.

Thoughts: A good complexity of flavor, but I guess I was hoping for something a bit more from something almost as old as myself. I still prefer the straight sherry bomb of the 105.

Score: 83 out of 100
