Glenfarclas 10 Bottling Note

The producers recommend this as an aperitif whisky. It certainly offers more complexity than you'd expect from a 10 year old dram. A lovely, delicate whisky from Glenfarclas.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lots of sherry, juicy. Honey, touch of toffee, creamy. Malty, barley.

Palate: Winter spice. Fruitcake, toffee, hint of smoke.

Finish: Long, spicy, fruity, oak.

Glenfarclas 10 Year Old Reviews

Nice Glenfarclas

Nice sherry whisky. Pleasant.

29th October 2020

The best entry level Speyside I’ve tasted.

I’ve not tried them all of course, but I’ve tried a fair few and this is the nicest. It’s unbelievably smooth for a ten year old and the Different flavours come through really clearly, even on an unrefined palette such as mine. Just a great whisky!

One of the best 10 year olds

This 10 year old is very drinkable, it has enough going on to keep you interested. Glenfarclas is one of my favourite distilleries and at this price it's a super steal.

Great value

Glenfarclas still one of my favourite distilleries having tried many expressions I still have a bottle of the 10 in my bar. Against other 10 year old and at this price it has to be voted number 1.

Good dram for the price

Lovely sipping whisky, not challenging just easy on the pallet. Glenfarclas one of my favourite distilleries.

31st May 2020

Phenomenal Speyside Single Malt

Easily the best malt that I have sampled to date. In my opinion ots better than th 15 year old.

Sherried candy

Sherried candy, come to daddy...

Sweet and juicy. Caramel, vanilla, honey. Fruitcake. Malty. Spicy, and just small hints of oak and smoke. A complex one for a ten year old whisky.

Reference poimt for all sherried whiskeys. Superb.

12th August 2018

Sherry !!!!

I have never been disappointed with a Glenfarclas bottle. I cannot believe this is a 10 year !!!!!! It tastes better than some 15

20th July 2018

A Classy whisky

This is a very classy whisky, it is smooth and no rough edges

21st January 2018


Its very good

10th June 2017


Prefer the 15 year old, but at this price then this is a steal.

A not so memorial Speyside

Drinking neat: Fruitcake, floral, honey, spicy, cologne, sugar sweet, oak. Pretty tasty and light, buy there's nothing there that makes me want more. I bought this as a sampler. I'm content with this and don't see myself buying an entire bottle. If someone offered me a dram, I definitely wouldn't decline.

28th September 2016

Very easy to enjoy

I'm in the last third of my bottle of this. It is an excellent whisky for the price. The tasting notes from the Master of Malt chaps is spot on. The sherry, honey and creamy malt are lovely to the nose. In fact this is simple a fascinating drink to sit and smell. The fruitcake last is lovely and is very mouthwatering. I'd pick this up again happily.

Reminiscent to me of Penderyn Myth. A taste to be acquired. Not like any other scottish malt I have tasted. Will rate once I finish the bottle, which should not take long!

24th July 2016

Just as I remember

Just finished my litre of 105, which, as ever, I thoroughly enjoyed. I felt, this time, that I should try something lighter from Glenfarclas, something I haven't had for quite a while - so back to the 1oy0. This a is firm, dry-ish dram which opens up with sherry sweetness and nuttiness. Very smooth and very easy drinking - so beware. A sweetness in the finish, which is long and lingering.

2nd May 2016

I like it!

Better than I did expect, best 40% sherry I've been tasting. I still prefer cask strength at sherry whiskies.

8th February 2016

tastes more complex than a 10yo

If there is such a thing as a session malt, this is it for me - smooth, accessible and avuncular. Lovely flavours of fruitcake and Madeira. Very good value.

21st January 2016

Dry for a Speyside

Quite dry for a Speyside, suprisingly a little rough and smokey. Firm.

7th December 2014

Excellent value

Good choice for the advent calendar. Smells of mince pies and brandy cream. Tastes of caster sugar, cloves, honey, lemon zest, with a spicy/sweet finish. It's a lovely drink for the Christmas season and, although not as complex as the Glenfarclas 15, it is just as pleasant and excellent value for money.

7th December 2014

Nose Only

I found the nose to be moderately peated also, which was not mentioned in the tasting notes.

9th November 2014

Top 3

A great whiskey this whiskey has now entered into my top 3 of all time which is ardbeg talisker and now this. The flavours are very complex for a 10 year old the Finnish made this whiskey for me with the oak coming in at the very end which leaves a great taste in your mouth. Worth £28 in my book easily a £35 whiskey I am so impressed i am going for the 15 yr old next:-)

29th October 2014

Very nice 10

A great 10 ten year old whisky at a reasonable price, not something you can say often. Very drinkable with a light caramel and plum nose and I cant wait to pick up a 15 for more of the same.

21st August 2014

Nice cognac!

Very nice and soft whisky, almost like an elegant, fruity cognac. Has a beautiful starter, but in the long run it just doesn't seem to leave a lasting impression.

13th August 2014

Good Taste

Good tasting malt whisky without the pretentious nonsense.

27th February 2014

Glenfarclas 10 Year old -


Light Sherried malt. Plums. Raisins. A little Coffee. Chocolate. Oak spice. Minimal struck matches. A very nice sherry monsterette of a nose. Not intensive. Pleasant. Easy to sniff for a long duration


Fruity coating taste. Surprisingly mouth coating considering ABV etc. sweet spicy sherried taste. Some easy warmth. All the flavours from the nose are present. Very easy drinking.


Short. Drying. Sherry oak spices. Some coffee mocha.

Adding water?

Just a drop in my dram to see. The nose is weakened. Not quite as sherried but a little more coffee seems apparent. Coffee flavoured toffos! if you can remember those? The palate looses some of the mouthfeel. The taste remains intact. The finish a little more coffee’d. Hmmm. With or without? I think personally I would go with dependant on my mood. I like the standalone mouthfeel. But I like the coffee in the finish which makes this malt for me a little more unique than your more regular sherried drams.

11th September 2013

Butter Spice Fruit

Vanilla, guava, and ground coriander aromas. Palate adds oaky nutmeg, pear & orange, and a touch of salt. Not overtly sweet & fruity, but rather sophisticated.

4th August 2013


good whisky yes a bit rough round the egdes but in a good way funny to me is that most donimint smell i get is cod liver oil smell of seven seas tablets maybe im crazy very fruity taste good value for money.

15th July 2013

very good

Drank a miniature bottle. Surprisingly very good, smooth and full of flavour. Now I want to try and fund a full bottle.

22nd March 2013


Disec, toplega okusa

3rd September 2012


Barbecued bananas and toffee apples on the nose. Sweetness and oak in the mouth. Fruitcakey yet bitter finish A little rough round the edges but a really characterful whisky for a 10yr. Very good value!
