The Glenfarclas 12 Year Old can undoubtedly be seen as the entry level malt from this Speysider. Originally it was sold through the duty free range, by the way.

Soft and very sherried nose full of fruits. Dried apricots next to fresh pastry with marshmallows. Really sweet. Soft spices. Evolves towards quite a bit of caramel. Werther's Originals. Mildly floral as well. After ten minutes it turns into candied sugar.

Rather light body with just a little bit of spice. Tannins, yes. Liquorice. Ginger too. Then some Turkish Delight, candied oranges and fresh figs. Hints of nuts.

Medium lengt finish that is drying towards the end.

A very docile, run of the mill Glenfarclas. Good introduction to the style of the distillery.
