usually i am a peat head, but from time to time i enjoy a sherry bomb. i love powerful malts, and this one is no slouch. it's powerful.

Nose: Toffee,Raisins dipped in liquor, oak.

Palate: Sherried fruits,major alcohol impact. can you spell OOOOOOMPH!, it fills your mouth, nose will hot, exploding sherry. this one is for cold winter nights. spice.

Finish: very long, warming finish. smooth. lingering.

with water: the sweet flavours and oak are revealed even more.

this CS malt should be drunk at this strength in my opinion. i usualy dont like to add water to those robust CS.

Winter is coming our way, stock up a few of the 105 for those cold nights. you won't regret it.

as a side note, there is also a 105 version of the 40 year old GF, but the price is a bit steep for me. should be an even better malt, which is mind blowing.

The 'farclas 105 is one of my absolute favorites. All the power and intensity but without any of the rough edges.

Speaking of sherry-bombs, have you tried Aberlour A'bunadh? Crazy stuff.
