This is part of the Glenfarclas core range – it’s a NAS expression that’s bottled at 60% ABV.
Nose: Sherry laden with cherries, vanilla, cream, and strawberries. Very sweet nose with little to no oak.
Palate: Plums, black cherry, mascarpone, vanilla, honey, very robust palate overall.
Finish: Very short and dry with an earthy sherry profile.
Rating: 88/100 – A very fruit forward sherried malt that makes for an easy drinker.
Value for the money: These retail close to $100 I believe which is steep for a NAS sherried malt in a core range. I’d like to see this closer to $70 or so, but not a terrible buy at retail.
