I have already written a few Glenfarclas reviews. Read those for the blurb and why I like the distillery. Here are the basics of this bottle.

Nose: Vanilla, sherry, cheese curd (odd I know), green apples, orange zest.

Palate: Smooth and creamy. There is a good spicy tang from the European oak casks. It's not overpowering or bitter but nicely balanced against the fruit. Sweet sherry and fruit.

Finish: Smooth, medium long, fruity.

It is smoother and creamier than the 21 but I prefer the 21 personally.

Bought a bottle of this and returned it to the store. I thought it was terrible. I've tasted it at the pub and it tasted much better. I thing the bottling at the pub was quite a bit older.

@rigmorole Did the store give you a refund? When this bottle is empty I wont replace it like for like. I will either save a few quid and get the 21 or spend a little more for the 30. Or, more likely, buy the 15 and then save the rest to spend on something new and interesting.
