Glenfarclas 18 Year Old Reviews

Below average 18yo

I would love to like this bottle. For an 18 YO, it seems good value for a 1L bottle. Then you realise why is it always the 17YO cost more?

The taste profile is largely ok... sweet sherry vanila note with nuttiness and typical apple from speyside. Zero smoke. Quite bright for an afternoon dram. But it also tasted quite sharp for its age. I would expect smoother finish for an 18YO and the relatively low ABV. The finish is a little too tannic, very unsettling numbness. makes you feel that it was sitting inside a tired cask made out of cheap construction wood.

This is no where near a good representation of Glenfaclas. Dont buy this just because you wanted a cheap 18YO. Go get the 17, or anything else in the Glenfaclas range.

Great tasting whisky

A truly great whisky, I bought a bottle for my 60th birthday, and our 38th wedding anniversary, and I gave to say both my mrs and myself really liked it. And so did our friends and family.

Takes a few attempts to like it

When i first tasted this, i would give it a 2 star simply because it has a very unpleasant metalic finish. And that umpleasantness stays for very long and after a while, thats all i tasted.
But this whisky grows on me. 1/4 through the bottle and i am starting to enjoy this one more and more!

Very good!

Just let this one rest a bit + a few drops of water and you are in for a real positive surprise! Don't dive in 1 minute after you opened the bottle. I suspect some nay-sayers here did just that.

Absolutely rubbish

This is awful whisky. No one should buy this. Terrible. Leave it to me to drink all buy myself at this price.

Honestly, epic whisky. Beautifully rounded and poised. Astonishing value at this price for 1L. Pour and let it sit for 30 mins or so with half a teaspoon of water. Wow. Citric toffee with layers of dark fruit. Probably my favourite speyside (so far). Gets better and better the more i drink it.

No... just, no

Didn't care for this one. The nose is alright with notes of fresh fruit and honey, along with a touch of dried fruits. Suspect old sherry casks have been used, re-fill and 3rd fill. However there is something off on the palate, like it's gone bad. It is sweet, and fruity and mellow but there is an off note like it's been tainted by a rotten stave if there was such a thing.

12 was better

I prefer 12 years compared to this. The nose was good but finishing not impressed.

Like this one better at 2nd attempt...flavours seemed more forthcoming in second bottle..don't know why.A yummy little dram on a cold winter evening...very good and quite toffee/butterscotch at times,like the 17 yr old.

Not impressed

Not up to the mark. 12 years better.18 finishing was rough

Cracking drink and value for your money.

Strange to see people saying it’s the same as the 12 yr old, it’s very different in my opinion. A great dream which can be acquired at a very decent price.

Sherried drop

Nice dram with a dry finish... Pricewise a safe bet.

23rd February 2017

Not impressed

Having had the 12yo, I bought a bottle of the 18yo. However, this one is actually less good than the 12yo, never had this experience before, better stick to the 12yo next time. Nose I did not like, taste does not differ much from the 12yo...

18th June 2016

Worth it

Well for the price, it was justified. I enjoyed the drink.

Baobhan Sith

Like the woman of the hills, this dram is not for the faint of heart.
It is truley the tipple for the connoisseur , I'm not insinuating that it will drink your blood but if the Baobhan Sith gets her teeth into you she will be in for a pleasant surprise.

identical to Glenfarclas 18yo

very interesting drink. I drink 18yo with its 12yo side by side. It's the same drink!
