We can't actually ship Glenfarclas 15 Year Old to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

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

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.

Nice for a change

A littler nippier than I expected for a 15 year old but still very nice however I prefer Balvenie 14 year old Caribbean cask which is much smoother and about the same price

Fair price for a delicious sherried scotch

Glenfarclas has been a bit hit or miss for me but this one is on point. Great sherried malt. Very good punchiness at 46% (something that is lacking a bit on their the 12 and 25 year olds). Very happy with this one!

Tasty and not too earthy or smokey!!

Yes a marvellous and great value Single malt for the money...now one of my favourites sitting alongside some higher priced spysides and holds its own!!
Will buy again definitely 😁👍

Not for me.

Tried in a bar in Edinburgh as part of a whisky flight. Definitely my least favourite of the selection I was served. Found it to be unpleasantly rough for a 15 year old malt. Doesn’t hold a candle to the 25 year old. Disappointing.

Yum

One of the best values out there. Beautiful and complex sherry and fruitiness.

Would like to try other age statements but consistently hear the 15 is the best.

Not what it once was

Not aged in PX - maybe Amontillado &/or Oloroso, and not the entire bottling.

Spicy, fruit peel notes. A little medicinal touch. Tasted immediately after Glenlivet 15 French Cask. This let the sherry character show but you have to wonder if supply for casks is impacting the style. I've had richer versions over the last 15 years or so

Still good value

Not quite the Christmas cake in a glass it was twenty years ago but the excellent distillate makes this worthwhile. Full bodied with cereal and spice notes to the fore. Buttery lingering finish.

Still a good dram

Used to drink this regularly 20 years ago. The profile has changed losing some of the rich christmas cake sherry notes but the current version is still an excellent whisky, full bodied and distinctive. There is still a sherry presence but the excellent distillate is what primarily carries this now .

Truly scrumptious

Beautiful nose that you could get lost in. Add a drop of water and the silky sherry notes entangle your tongue taking you to Christmas heaven. A true delight at a very affordable price
