Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Bottling Note

A wonderfully sherried 15 year old dram from Glenfarclas, boasting oodles of dried fruit notes. It’s bottled at 46% ABV simply because this was the strength that George Grant’s grandfather preferred it at. Happily, this also results in the Speysider boasting a big, juicy, Christmas cake profile. A fabulously complex Scotch while also being easily drinkable.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Intense, powerful sherry. Cream sherry, certainly – Pedro Ximenez? almost… a touch of peppermint? An almost rancio quality to this. Smells older than 15.

Palate: Raisins, more sherry, orange peel, walnuts, dates.

Finish: Incredibly long, complex, more of the Walnuts again.

Overall: Water draws out sweetness. This is Christmas cake, not whisky. Simply astonishing.

Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Reviews

Dominating alcohol burn.

The taste is generally good, sweet and spicy, but the alcohol smell and taste is dominating to much... Which is odd since it is "only" 46% and I have cask strength drams, that I find less ethanol tasting. Would not buy again.

Disppointed

Over the years I have enjoyed many bottles of this 15yo. It was a reliable 'go-to' for a rich sherried dram. Opened my new bottle last night to cheer myself up after all the depressing news about more lockdowns. However, I can't say I enjoyed my dram as much as I was expecting. It was a pale imitation of the 'Christmas cake in a glass' it used to be: it didn't seem to have the same richness or body or lingering finish. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad dram - just not up to standard, in my opinion.

A very nutty dried fruit cake

Interesting flavours, quite unexpected as the 18year tastes quite unlike this one. Definitely tasting the walnuts, lightly roasted. Memories of a dried up fruit cake with tons of fruit came to mind after getting over the strong nuttiness. Was excited to try this, but now that I have (had a sample bottle), I might not see myself purchasing a bottle.

Great after dinner dram with dessert

Lovely golden color. Sherry, fruit, vanilla, old wood nose. Fruitcake, sweet spice, vanilla, sherry flavour. Long length, lingering and strong alcohol. Very moreish !

Exellent for the price

I really like Sherry Whiskies, and this hits the spot, without being over powered by the Sherry. I did find I needed to add quite a few drops of water, adding drop by drop, really brings out the finer parts of this Whisky.

This is spot on

Tried this for the first time, and wow. I'm impressed. For the money this is real nice. Full of flavour and texture. Sherry bomb, loads going on, strong finish. For the price tag this is such great value!

Superb Value

Coats the tounge beautifully with sherry and raisin notes. Finish long and very pleasant. At £50 a bottle this is a absolute steal!
