Nose: Warming and smooth, yet with a sharp edge. Sultanas, Apples, Cinnamon. Treacle, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Dark Chocolate yet tempered by acidic notes. This is gorgeous and intense!

Palate: Much more subtle. Very... no, extremely smooth! Chocolate and caramel flavours. Hints of vanilla ice-cream. Very slightly nutty. Mellow, almost euphoric, (am I getting carried away??).

The Finish is long. Vanilla cream remains for a considerable time. Walnut Whips suddenly spring to mind. Eventually fades leaving a very delicate bitterness.

Wow - I have now tried every Glenfarclas up to the 25. This was truly delicious but I cannot say if it is my absolute favourite, (the 21 at just a bit more than half the price of the 25 is excellent). What I have noticed is that every whisky-loving Scot I've met raves about Glenfarclas, and I think overall this distillery is just about the best for price/quality ratio.

@Nemesis101 - thank you for a well written review. I think the 25yr and 105 to be my favourite expressions from the distillery.
