Glenfarclas 15 Year Old

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.

Excellent just a touch overpriced.
Sherry bomb. Delicious. Better options for the price however.

So disappointing...
Good whisky but not £72 whisky. This was a decent buy at £50. Speyburn 15 knocks spots off this for £20 less.

Living on former glory?
For a 15 year old at 46% , I found this slightly thin, lacking in complexity and certainly no sherry monster. The MoM tasting notes talk of raisins, walnuts, dates and orange peel, sadly I found these lacking or weak. Imho, Glenfarclas needs to invest a little more money on good casks as they appear tired. For the price this represents reasonably, possibly good value but there are more complex and stronger sherry influence option on the market, albeit at same or higher price. This version does compare favourably with the 43% 18 year old however I would not buy either again.
