Latest User Reviewssmooth,delicous and a wonderful lingering after taste a perfect after work relaxing drinkIt is with some convition that I can say that Glenfarclas is easily one of the top three whiskies for me. I mean that of most ages which this distillery puts out. The 10 year old is a convincing example that the fettish of the more mature whisky can be misplaced. There is little doubt that the 15, 17 year old editions are other worldly. The best whisky I have ever had on my shelf was a 30 year old. But let us not lose sight of the basic eligance of this particular expression. Do not misunderstand me. It is not that I think that Glenfarclas is beyond error, for they certainly strayed off the path a couple of times. The 105 cask strength should not have been released while the Glenfarclas Heritige available for the Swedish and French markets only is is little better than rocket fuel and lets the brand name down. With Glenfarclas avoid these exotic expressions designed for the neophyte to whisky from European countries that prefer brandy and vodka. This basic 10 year old is superb while the older expressions by age are simply sublime.Compared to the standard Singleton this whisky is slightly rougher and appears to be yet another of those products which 1. allows the distillery to get rid of average but excess stock and 2. Do so through airport outlets. In this regard it lets down the name a wee bit. It is not that this is a bad dram - not by a long way - only a bottle of properly aged Singleton would be more appreciated. With regard to price there can be little complaint. There are many better known malt whiskies which are inferior, but I reman sceptical about this early release for quick sale rather than waiting until the dram is actually ready to drink.Yet another great dram fro JuraKasher LeMahadren (Matured in 100% Bourbon casks). Green apples, honey, roasted barely, pickling spices, oaky vanilla. Wonderful! Must add water!
