typical distillery representative.
Adventure on the blog with Glenfarclas started with a really high level, because of whisky distilled in 1953 and maturing for 58 years (Glenfarclas 1953, 58 years old).
Today I have here, younger 21 years old, edition. The alcohol content is 43% ABV, but it is chillfiltered and probably caramel coloured.
N: Sherry is obvious, figs, prunes maybe also in chocolate, quite fresh, dried apricots, even some herbal and drying, after adding a few drops of water tobacco and old leather armchairs are appearing, but then after a minute they evaporate, in exchange a lot of sweets occur, tobacco and some smoke are coming back for a moment later,
S: a lot of ripe and dried fruits, plums, candied oranges, apricot, not particularly sweet, everything goes into drying bitterness, there is also some spices, with the addition of water, ripe fruits gain the upper hand, something like a peach, sparking on the tongue increases, it begins to be pretty sweet, further soaked, moist raisins,
F: long with ripe fruit, still a slightly sparking.
21 years old is a typical Glenfarclas Distillery representative, matured also in sherry casks.
Interesting multilayered whisky expression.
