the youngest Glenfarclas on the blog.
After recent post of Glenfarclas 21 years old, today I have in my hand 12 year old single malt from this distillery.
Alcohol content 43% ABV. According to the label colour is natural, but there is no information about chillfiltration, so assume that this process has here been done.
N: cake, mixed Christmas spices something like clove, cinnamon, cardamom, anise, further apple and plum compote, plums and cherries, rhubarb, orange peel, cocoa,
T: ripe plums, dried appricots, candied orange, and then changing oak phases, turning into delicate sparking, a slight bitterness and a touch of cocoa,
F: long with drying bitterness.
When I last tasted Glenfarclas 12 years old, after water was added single malt immediately drowned. I did not want it to happen again, so I added a few drops watre, that have accentuated the sweetness in the smell and taste.
