Review #95. Glenfarclas 1990 24yr KLWines Selection

Review #95 | /r/Scotch Review #36 – Glenfarclas 1990 24yr KL Selection

The Schtick: This is a bottling of casks that KL Wines in California picked from Glenfarclas. This particular cask was bottled at 50% ABV, coming from first fill sherry.


Distiller: Glenfarclas

Bottler: Glenfarclas (For KL)

ABV: 50% ABV

Age: 24 Years

Maturation: Sherry

Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Deep and thick sherry notes – plum, fig and some grape. There’s spice, dust and leather here too and it’s oh so well blended.

Taste: Thick sherry, lots of leather and spice, with sherry fruits. More complex than when I first opened the bottle. It’s sweet but not overpowering and very “deep”.

Finish: Long, complex and sweet. The fig here really explodes with grape notes and the sherry playing a strong role.

Overall: This is a phenomenal bottling. It also shows how much a little bump in ABV can help a dram. This is great stuff, and a great selection on behalf of KL.

Thanks for reading!
