Glenfarclas 12 Bottling Note

Lots of sherry and fruit in this, Glenfarclas 12 was originally bottled for export and travel retail markets. In 2006, it was named the "Best Sherried Whisky" in the Single Malt World Cup, and in 2007 and 2008 it won Gold at the Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Light and creamy with a mix of supple, soft sherry and Manuka honey. Gentle and well-balanced, there are hints of smoke, rich oak, and a little pine resin.

Palate: Medium-bodied, with notes of date and walnut cake, Oloroso sherry and hints of earthy forest floor. A beautiful note of malt, with toffee apple and a touch of smoke.

Finish: Spicy and long, notes of allspice, cinnamon and cloves, with orange zest and sherry.

    Coming back at it

    Almost finished my first bottle of Glenfarclas 12. What a dram. Probably one of the first time I plan buying another bottle of the same scotch. Try it with a dark chocolate, it's a perfect match. That nose: ginger, bourbon vanilla, apricots. Add some water to it and let it stand still for a while before savoring. Sip is slowly to discover all the nuances in taste. Some peat, sherry, lemon, very crisp. Lovely stuff.

    Yep yep yep!

    Very good, not too intense, but flavorful, refreshing, sherry sweet, zesty, spicy, with a nice and neat finish. For the sherried malt lovers!

    Love it

    Can't find a sherried 12 year better for the price. Nose: Lots of dried fruit (prunes?), sweet sherry. Palate: Very simple at first, but gets better with every sip and every drink, a little smoky, just perfect (and I'm not a fan of peated). Finish: nice and spicy! This is a really great malt for the price, something to keep in the house! Great to share

    Amazing stuff

    Glenmorangie meets Highland Park, but with a more pleasant overall nose and taste than both. Sweet with slight peat, and a complexity that I haven't yet found to rival. Best I've had so far.

    My favorite 12

    This 12 year old expression is big and bold; It is not gentle and elegant. Thanks to the largest pot stills in Scotland, Glenfarclas is robust with lots of rich vanilla, honey and cream. There is just enough wood and spice to balance its unapologetic flavors. This is my favorite 12 year old whisky!

    Lush stuff, can't wait to test the 40 year old at Xmas

    This is a classy malt..very high quality feel and finish to it. Nose is sweet and honeyed smoke and oak there in the back ground Taste sherry evident good malt bit of warmth that hits the throat tad drying the honey and vanilla come through with sharper apple type taste and a hint of smoke, Finish sherry and spicy with good length than lingers. All in all a top spay side dram great example of its type.. Can't speak highly enough very good stuff. Hopefully the 40 year old will take it up several notches.. Only 7 weeks til Xmas.. But 12 can be hard to find waitrosse (order job) or online best bet to find it..

    Great Sherried Malt

    I definitely prefer sherry and port finished whisky and this is a great example, ranks alongside my favourite Glenmorangie Quintan Ruban and Macallan.

    Glenfarclas 12 Year Old

    Nose: Sherry. Grape and butterscotch. Dried fruits and a little spice. However there is also a tiny hint of match, which tells of sulphur from the sherrycasks. It doesn’t ruin the nose completely though. Taste: The sherry maturation this is evident. Dried fruits and sweetness, vanilla and honey. Spicy notes hits you in the finish.

    Mysteriously Great

    Nose- light and well-balanced Palate - mixture of spice and sweetness of a walnut cake. Finish - long, little fruity, spicy, and touch of sherry. This is good stuff, yet have to explore other single malt whiskeys.
