SSMC – The Art of Malt – Est. 2002

Glenfarclas 105

This is one of the single malts we tasted at the February meeting. here’s a review:

Glenfarclas' only cask strength whisky

Glenfarclas’ only cask strength whisky

Nose: Sweet and nutty. Big and complex. We have another winner, it seems.
After a while some smoke as well, followed but more and more organics. Prune jam?

Taste: Very similar to the nose; big, sweet and a little nutty. Then more fruits.

After a while the sherry becomes much more obvious – and a tad overpowering.
Second sampling: Just as big and powerful in the nose as the first time. Lovely.
Sherry. Amazing power, although it doesn’t seem quite as complex as the first time.
It has organics and spices, but it’s not very ‘deep’. Very pleasant on the palate.
Once I got used to the powerful profile I got lots of fruit and maybe a hint of smoke too?
Score: 88 points – this is one impressive whisky that packs quite a punch. Interesting.
