A 25 year old well constructed Sherry cask whisky from Speyside for just over £100... how is this still a thing? Obviously the time travelling team at Glenfarclas are still pricing at late 90's prices. Not that I am complaining.
Nose Sherry, sherry, sherry... but despite all this sweetness up front the nose can only be described as gentle. Raisins and a touch of freshly cut wood.
Palate Plenty of sherry here too along with lingering dark fruits but this dram somehow manages to be both sweet and savoury which I imagine is the effect of the oak which translates here as sawn wood and fatty nuts - cashews spring to mind. There's a herbacious note lingering here in the background too. Maybe sage
Finish The finish is long and sweet. Heavy sherry here too which I have to say by this point I am not surprised to find. I am however surprised at how long it leaves my tongue tingling.
In conclusion this whisky is real value for money. Lots of sherry which is typical of Glenfarclas. The finished product is a surprisingly well balanced 'sherry bomb' which is oily and dense. Leaving you feeling satisfied well after you have finished chewing ...... Stock up before the inevitable price rises which have seemingly started to effect the rest of the range.
