Review #72 | /r/Scotch Review #25 – Glenfarclas 12


Distiller: Glenfarclas

Bottler: Glenfarclas

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: 12 Years

Maturation: Sherry Cask

Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Grapes, sherry and sweet icing sweetness. Some vanilla and spice.

Taste: Caramel, red fruit. Mostly plumb and grape but there’s almost some dark chocolate raspberry in there as well. Some leather, allspice and dark chocolate.

Finish: Short but simple. It’s not trying to be something it’s not. chocolate, some spice and lots of fruity sherry sweet. I like it.

Overall: It’s no GlenDronach 12, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a delicious introduction to the Glenfarclas line all the same.

Thanks for reading!
