Glenfarclas 8y

Advent Calendar 2020 3/24

Reviewed by victor

Tasting 24 samples totally blind in December 2020, you can find more here. All notes except the very last few sentences are written before reveal. Disclaimer: These are all very small drams, around 1.5 cl each, so doing a proper tasting is challenging. I'll do my best!

0.7 (Deep gold)


Powerfully nutty, stewed apples, dried apricot. Salt. A fair bit of vanilla and toffee as well.


Apple cider, raisins, wine-y


Apples, malty, a little dry wood.

I like it! A timid dram, but a nice one. Guess: Some PX influence? Definitely some sherry, probably a finish or refill. 46%-ish, not very old. Glenfarclas 8. Didn’t know it existed! Certainly new to me. Only 40%, but evidently not too shabby anyway. Don’t think I was too far off with the guess, eh? Check out my other advent tastings!
