I have a bottle of Glenfarclas The Private Reserve 2003 from February and I’ve tasted it several times already to make sure what do I feel. Single malt was distilled in 2003 and bottled in November 2011, with 46% ABV, unchillfiltered. The color may be a natural, but I don’t have such an information. To create this batch they used casks No: 9, 10, 11, 1875 and 1876. It doesn’t say a lot, though the data is given on the bottle. I don’t know what kind of casks we are dealing with, but after tasting it must be presumed that some sherry were also there.

Today I have paired this whisky with sushi. I must admit that it even went nice. Whisky emphasized delicate Japanese flavors pretty good, but I added to it more water than usual, not to overwhelm the food.

C: dark amber,

N: raisins, plums, pleasantly sweet with distinct touches of sherry, a little peppery, a little sour, ripe orange and its peel, bitter orange, Christmas cake;

T: intense sparking throughout the mouth, then bitter oranges and orange peel, traces of grapefruit, bitterness, flavor clearly reveals signs of youth and some uncouth, it warms up and even a little burns, with the time sweeter tones get up;

F: even long, dry, with traces of sparking, wood, orange peel and bitterness.

Score: 80.

An interesting example of a young whisky. Youth is evident in the taste, the smell is more mature. I think it is worth trying such a single malts, then it is easier to appreciate those aged many years longer and understand what does maturing in the cask mean.
