I ordered a gift box of Glenfarclas 15yr in January, and this wee bottle of 25yr came with it. I think it is now time to crack it open and enjoy!

Nose: WHAT A NOSE! Wow. DEElicious. Currants, apple fritters, cinnamon, and fruitcake! I am loving this. Just the slightest bit of nose tingle. Just enough to remind me its a whisky that I'm nosing, and not a frosted Christmas cake! Mmmmmm.....

Palate: Ooh! A little tart. Spices building. The mouth leaves a lot to be desired. Not very good, really.

Finish: THERE IT IS! Long and wonderful. Not very sweet at all; mostly spicy and cinnamon. The backwash of aroma is fantastic. Just a subdued version of the nose. More spice; less sweet.

I come back to the nose for the best part. It is intense, flavorful, and mind-numbing. Pralines. So good.

This whisky has a great nose, but the 15yr beats it -- hands down.
