Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Very complex and rich. Calves leather, cedar wood cigar boxes and cocoa kicking things off. Then we’re onto waves of sweet sherry and chocolate orange, marmalade and butterscotch. Hints of molasses develop and just a whisper of pepper.

Palate: About as rich and intense as anything we’ve ever tried from Glenfarclas. The chocolate richness develops in the glass, with notes of chocolate raisins, dates and figs, orange and maraschino cherry. Then spices and thick espresso coffee.

Finish: Sublimely concentrated waves of mochaccino and gingerbread, with deep leathery notes clinging to the end.

Overall: We’re left speechless! It’s overwhelmingly good…

User Reviews of the Glenfarclas 40 Year Old

Tip Top Glenfarclas

Just had the pleasure of a Glenfarclas tasting session at Hedonism Wine in London and the 40yr blew me away. Fantastic, smooth, rich and warming. I think this is the best of the range. It reminds me a little of a Highland Park 25 - leather chairs and warmth. The best thing about the 40 year old?...the price. Yes, I know it's a premium bottle and still a fair dip into the wallet but when you compare to others of the age I think it's good value. The fact that the Company has specifically bottled in a very basic way (it hardly stands out) to keep costs down should indicate that the value really is in the liquid.

Worth every penny

This is a truly supreme libation. A 40 year old at this price is amazing, mind you the 15 year old is also delicious and priced at a relative snip to this.

cask strength

There was the 40 year old 105 (cask strength at 60%) that came out a few years back. Or check out the Family Casks. All much more expensive mind you - this really is a true bang for your buck solid guaranteed 90+ point whisky. And 46% ain't bad (many casks this old are around that anyway...)

Excellent stuff

So very rich, so very refined and an absolute delight. Twice now I've ended a whisky tasting night with a glass of this and both times I've found it easily equalling and surpassing the ones I've had before even though the competition hasn't exactly been either shy or young. 9/10 (10/10 is reserved for a cask strength version of this should one ever come out)

The greatest Whiskey ever!

I was lucky enough to be given the miniature of the 40 year old and I loved every sip. It is so rich and smooth with a pleasant sweetness. I think I sat smelling the empty glass for about 10 minutes afterwards it was that good!

My absolute favorite

This whisky is simply amazing. Even my non-scotch drinking friends love it and come back for more (if I let them). It's richness and smoothness are simply incredible and it readily blows away any McCallan (yes, including the 30 yr. old sherry). A fantastic bargain at twice the price.
