Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Bottling Note

Here we have an absolute classic Speysider from a long-time family-owned distillery. This 25 year old single malt from Glenfarclas spent its days in 100% Oloroso sherry casks. It’s complex and delicately sherried, a whisky that’s sure not to disappoint. It won gold at the 2019 International Spirits Challenge and makes a great after dinner treat. Awesome.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A touch of menthol. Classic Sherry notes, less pronounced than the 15 year old perhaps, but the complexity is greater.

Palate: Incredibly clean central palate, but amazingly tangy. Really zingy top notes. Sherry and creamy barley, hints of gingerbread and nutty chocolate.

Finish: Very, very long and complex finish, oak-rich, hints of smoke, cocoa, buttery...

Overall: One of our all-time favourite Speyside malts.

Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Reviews

Maybe expected too much

I bought a bottle for christmas at a reasonable price of £99, great value for a 25year old malt, and although i enjoyed it very much, maybe expected a little more from it than i got. maybe a few more % abv, maybe a little more 'sherriness', maybe a little more of the fruit tastes associated with some sherried drams would have made a difference, i'm not sure, but i'll re-visit it again at some time, just not now.

A work of genius

An extraordinarily balanced and wonderfully complex sherried Speyside. You can fall asleep in the nose alone; breathtaking cream, sherry and honey- without a trace of sharpness. Balance, balance balance: so smooth it can be imbibed without a drop of water. But a drop or two serves to lengthen one of the outstandingly gorgeous finishes you’ll ever taste. Incomparable: a work of genius.

It’s very good!

Very tasty! It’s complex, you’ll need to spend some time with it, there’s a lot going on and it leaves you pleasantly confused by what’s going on in your mouth.

Generally though, lovely aromas, very smooth, finish lasts forever.

Too sharp

Not going to lie, my wife brought me a bottle for xmas, i was very exited to try it.
Quite disappointed with the initial taste, very sharp and not as smooth as i was expecting. Won't be buying another bottle.

Lovely drop

I don't claim to know much about whisky, but I know what I like and what I don't like and this stuff is lovely. Smooth as silk and the more you have the more you enjoy it. Seems good value to me too for a 25 year old one.

Brilliant

The best I have had to date
The finish is ever lasting
Make sure you taste it like a good wine
Smell it before you let it breathe then after wow
