Glenfarclas

1984 Plain Hogshead

ABV 46.3%

That whisky struggles to stand out among a flight of big sherry guys, but it is worth enjoying. Though we could have expected more character from a 27 Years Old whisky.

Tasting Notes

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Light and delicate. Floral. Apple blossom. A chalky note. Lemonade. All\rvery subtle and ethereal.

Palate: Smooth, round and silky. Very refreshing. Aniseed drops. Lime juice.

Finish: Medium, dry with light almond.

Comment: That whisky struggles to stand out among a flight of big sherry guys, but it is worth enjoying. Though we could have expected more character from a 27 Years Old whisky.

Score: 7.6

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Clean, light and appetising with hints of an appealingly burnt depth. Wet green leaves and meat stock mixed with bamboo shoots.

Palate: Quite juicy on the mid-palate where there's a lychee like blandness playing\roff against earthiness.

Finish: A quick exit.

Comment: Yes, it's a-typical but it's also a delicious dram. I'd have it neat.

Score: 7.8
