Considered by some to be one of the world’s greatest whiskies, Glenfarclas 105 is a turbo charged Sherry monster on steroids. If you are looking for “smooth” then look elsewhere. If you love whiskies that pack a punch then this is the dram for you! Bottled at a mightly 60% ABV this is a bold and assertive whisky packed with flavour.
Official Tasting Notes:
Nose – Complex, oaky with apples and pears and a tempting dark toffee sweetness.
Palate – Dry and assertive. The flavours develop quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint oak and sherried fruit.
Finish – Amazingly smooth for the strength. Wonderfully warming with a lingering spiciness, yet very rounded.
