Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Taster Gift Pack
Glenfarclas is a true star of the whisky world. It has been in the hands of the Grant family since 1865, having opened in 1836. A very impressive heritage!
Glenfarclas' tasting notes for this dram state that it is complex, sherried, deliciously peated and with light butterscotch aromas as well as a hint of dried fruit.
The palate is full-bodied with a superb balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours.
The finish is long lasting with sweet sherry.
This gift pack offers a great opportunity to try both the Glenfarclas 105 and 25 year old.
A mini whisky bar in essence!
105 - At a whopping 60%, you'd expect the 105 to be over-powered and perhaps a bit rough...but you'd be wrong to do so. Even at such dizzying alcoholic heights, the 105 retains the character of Glenfarclas with its sweet, spicy and sherried flavour. Definitely one of the smoothest cask strength whiskies we've tried. That being said, we'd recommend sampling it both with and without water to experiment a tad.
25 Year Old.
Their notes for this expression inform us of a complex, yet refined and delicately peated nose with fresh, tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts moving on to a full-bodied and robust palate, with the sherry and oak fighting for your attention. All the while there is a powerful nutty smokiness too. The finish is intense, long lasting, dry, smoky and malty. A beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth.
