This is my first sampling into the Glenfarclas line. Guess I'll work my way up from the bottom.

Nose: Lots of Sherry, Pear, and cereals - Barley and Malt. A very pleasant nose.

Palate: Christmas spices - Clove, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Burnt caramel, dried apricots. A few drops of water really bring out the flavors and intensifies the sweetness and also removes the youthful alcohol bite.

Finish:Long. Bitter spice, oak, a little smoke. Nice.

I was impressed by this dram and find myself going back to it, I don't have a lot of experience with sherried but this compares favorably to The Balvenie Double wood. The other sherried I've had is the A'bunadh which is such a different beast. I look forward to trying others from this line.

Yeah, the Glenfarclas range is both very good and very distinctive. Enjoy!

Indeed I will! Based on your and others reviews I am especially looking forward to trying the 15 when I can find it. It has thus far proved elusive.
