The Schtick: This is an 11yr, cask strength release from Glenfarclas, which is well known to produce some well sherried whiskies. This was a European release not seen in the states.

Distiller: Glenfarclas

Bottler: Glenfarclas

ABV: 59.8% ABV

Age: 11 Years

Distilled: 2004

Bottled: 2015

Source: Sample

Nose: Honey, sticky fruits, toffee, nutty, rich sherry fruits. Loads of caramel.

Taste: Thick, rich, some heat, sour fruits, citrus, leather, oak, pepper, tobacco, sulfur. The richness here is astounding, and there is a ton of stewed fruits: figs, dates, currants, blackberry which blends really well with caramel.

Finish: Long, rich, sweet cream, sherry, tobacco. Finish goes for days.

Overall: Really nice, little hot, nice sherry though. Complex blend of tobacco, sherry, sticky fruits, vanilla. Richness carries throughout. What more can I say? I really enjoyed this, thoroughly.

Thanks for reading!
