What a cracker! In my review of the Glenfarclas 10 year old I mentioned how the distillery is a family business that is currently in the hands of the 6th successive generation. When drinking this I really don't mind where it comes from because this bottle stands out on it own. It is a wonderful sherried whisky which oozes class and competence.
In the glass you see a golden amber liquid. On the nose you start with Sherry, salt, dark fruits including dates and raisins followed with a twist of orange peel.
This is one of the best sherried whiskies that I have tried. It is smooth, rich and well rounded.
The finish is long with sweet sherry, dried fruits and a mild spice. I have seen the description of Christmas cake used for this bottle and I can't disagree. It's a real gem and one to be savoured. This may well become a regular in my cabinet.
