Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Apple, orange, less sherry than the 15yo. Peppermint again?!

Palate: Incredibly smooth. Barley-rich, just a textbook smoothness and rounded character that leaves you gasping for another sip…

Finish: Long, barley-rich, awesomely smooth, very little oak influence.

Overall: Very, very pleasant. Could teach Roger Moore a thing or two about smoothness.

    User Reviews of the Glenfarclas 21 Year Old

    Not disappointed anymore

    In the interests of fairness I thought I should correct my previous review where I stated that this whisky was disappointing. I've found that as the bottle has gone down, the whisky has really opened up and revealed its true character. A lesson for me in the power of oxidisation. Apologies to Glenfarclas. This is a very nice whisky with a depth of flavour that perhaps takes some time to reveal itself. In the end, I would have to say that in my opinion, it is superior to the 15. There is a dryness in the finish of the 15 which I think detracts from the experience. The finish on the 21 is longer, sweeter and more complex. YMMV.

    good but not great

    great nose. lots of orange. a bit too much alcohol on the palate. a bit hot/harsh. not bad. like the Balvenie 15 and the Glenlivet 18 better

    Love the 15. Great value for money and a very satisfying whisky. Tried the 12 and thought it was OK for the money but there are better options in this price range. The 21 is exactly as the previous two reviwers have stated. No complexity or depth of flavour, particularly for a 21 year old whisky. I would choose the 12 over the 21, but wouldn't buy either again. The 15 is definitely the one to go for in my opinion. Makes me wonder if Glenfarclas are flogging this one as a cheap 21 year old to people who don't know any better and buy on the "21" factor alone. Has really diminished my respect for Glenfarclas, although I will continue to buy the 15 if it maintins its current qualiity.

    very smooth but I agreed with the gent before me, it lacked complexity and the draw to drive me to buy a bottle
    Give me the 25 year all day at $75 more

    Yes, it's smooth. But it's not very rewarding. No conplexity, no caracter. I like the 15 yo better.

    Love it

    I love this whisky. I love the aromas, the flavours, and the mouthfeel. Sweet and rich and creamy. Hard to savour, because I want more.

    Nice Dram

    A very palatable and smooth whisky but I was expecting a little more from a 21 year old. Lacked the complexity and depth normally associated with a malt of this age.

    Light as a balloon

    So light and smooth you will, as the tasting notes above say, be wanting some more. Almost as good as the 40 year old, but at completely different ends of the intensity spectrum.

    Smoothest whisky ever!

    Wow just wow, so smooth one of my new favs and certain to buy another when my bottle runs out.

    Re: Surprise difference between bottles

    I think it has something to do with it being closed. I have a bottle from 2011 and when i first opened it the one scent that dominated everything was as you said old-wet-wood! But after a prolonged oxidation in the bottle with some air and a little perseverance, it opened up to a wonderful dark fruit christmas cake flavor-profile. So according to my experience it might be the whisky being closed as i also had the wet-wood treatment that was so bad i directly thought the particular bottle i had was bad or just a duffer. So a usefull tip give it time, lotsa time!

    Surprise difference between bottles

    I must've gotten a bad bottle the first time I purchased this from a shop: serious taste of old, wet wood with everything else quite diminished and and a quickly disappearing aftertaste. The one I'm tasting right now has much bolder aromas with none of that 'soggy cask' taste to taint it, and it lingers on the tongue and in the throat much longer. Good stuff for the price it commands.

    14th December 2012


    Yes,you get peppermint and citrus + a whole range of whisky tastes. Oak is there as always (it is whisky after all),to describe it as 'harsh' in this case is, to me, simply wrong. While I don't entirely disagree with previous comments I want to comment on the smoothness and lingering special after taste.

    25th July 2011

    A great whisky

    Nose: Lots of nose, oak and harsh wood. Of course vanilla, nuts and sherry.
    Taste: Again, harsh, wood, strong and bold. Bubbly and lovely
    Summary: Lots of character, peppery, very nice balance. Light and a feeling of summer. Smooth and complex. Not that much sherry as hoped but still a great whisky.

    After the 15 year the 21...

    peppermint yes - nose and palate. Also some green grass. Long long finish - bittersweet. Less fruit cake than the 15 year for sure - but some citrus in the background? Rounded and smooth. Indeed, is it too rounded and smooth for its own good?
