The last sample of Glenfarclas in my cabinet (what a shame!) is a single cask bottling from 1994 (not the Family Cask, but an official bottling for Mähler-Besse in France). It was distilled in February 1994 and bottled in October 2004, after a 10 year old maturation on an oloroso sherry cask. 300 bottles were filled.

The color is a deep, dark oloroso. I presume it was a first-fill sherry cask. The nose is very similar to the '105': demerara sugar, dark fruit, dades, oranges - but it also has something nicely sour (balsamico?).

It is very, very soft on the palate, yet with a very powerful body. This is the bodybuilder of the Farclies (is that a word?). First you encounter the classic sherry tastes (which I find wonderful), but toffee and even some milk chocolate give this whisky a cozy complexity. Does not need water at all.

The finish is warm, long and spicy.

If you like sherried whiskies, then this is your dram.
