Distribution of ratings for this:
nose: a lot of sherry and honey, dried fruits, reminds the smell of a christmas cake, very sweet.
taste: honey, brown sugar, dark caramel, hints of rock melon, good maltiness.
finish: gently warming, angelica, bitter-sweet, not much wood on the palate. the persisting flavor that remains on the tongue is some sort of smokey tobacco note with a pleasant mellow and sweet bitterness.
summary: very sweet, a lot of sherry. there is no smoke at all while nosing and tasting this glenfarclas, but it comes with the end and stays quite long, like a smokey tobacco tongue after a cigarette. there is a slightly dull and faint aftertaste somewhere there in my opinion, like a stale - liver note. not much but still undefinable. a very good single malt, but maybe I had to high expectations when I bought this whisky. I enjoy this bottle a lot, and it is indeed a very rounded and gentle malt, but it lacks of some character for me. very well balanced (maybe to much for me), but I expected some sort of surprise in there which I couldn't find. could be an 86 but I still don't get this extra kick and surprise while drinking it, so 84 for me.
