This entry level offering from Glenfarclas is a solid at it’s price point. Glenfarclas decided to bottle this at 40% instead of the usual 43% which it bottles the rest of it’s main line of products. While this lets them lower the price point it does slightly flat.
The value proposition on this bottle is a little weak because the price is just a few dollars less than Glenfarclas 12 year old which is a slightly better offering. One could argue that even the legendary Glenfarclas 105 is a better value because it is roughly the same price as the Glenfarclas 10 year old when you adjust for the amount of alcohol. I still always keep this in my collection because i am a big fan of Glenfarclas.
Nose: Caramel, hint of almond, smells a little young and fiery.
Taste: Well balanced Sherry influences. Touch of sweetness. Red fruit is brought out when diluted.
Finish: Short finish. Slightly peppery.
