Member Reviews and Ratings of Glenfarclas 105
Rich, smooth and left longing for more. At this price Glenfarclas 105 must be the bargain of the month.
Wow! I never thought whisky could be so reach and strong. I will need couple of years of training I guess. Taste is so exotic that comes close to some Rhums.
Loved it. Complex flavor.
Shattered in transit. Never got to taste a drop. Smelled good, though!
This is amazing! Love the flavors!!
Now this one is a pleasure - powerful yet smooth - worth the drop and the bottle.
Sugar on fire!
Excellent thank you!
Sherrybomb and i like it. Add some water and your good to go.
A bit of a bite to start, but smooth as it warms. Add a couple drops of water to open the flavors up. Good flavor...a lot going on.
Spicy, peppery, a little bit of caramel.
Fantastic scotch that packs a punch. Nice mix of sweet and fruity with a little spice.
Starts with a big oaky kick and simmers down to a spicy then smoothly sweet finish. It not subtle at all but there are lots of complexities behind that initial burst of flavor.
Warming, rich, sweet, vanillic. I really like this.
Sherry is overpowering.
It's a little spicy, but I actually thought that was a good thing.
This one is strong with the force, so some water droplets would not be considered a sin. Bold, strong, complex, and packed with a peaty flavor. Aroma may prove daunting and intense. Upon tasting, you are hit with a peaty smokiness and nutty sweetness. The sherry influence is there, but forced to share the spotlight with a delicious complexity. Aftertaste lingers with great intensity of spice. Oak and pepper flavor are gradually revealed. Truly delicious. This highland single malt scotch whisky should be on any scotch lover's list. Cannot get enough.
Spicy and rough
I'm a big fan of the Glenfarclas 12 (which is my current favorite), but the 105 left me wanting more. It's a nice, strong cask-strength, but it lacks the smoothness of something like Tamdhu's Cask Strength. I don't think I'll buy this one again, as I feel it's over priced.
A little harsh to me.
Can drink all night...
Flora and fruit smell, a little sweet and spicy after, thick like oil, lasting long
Enjoyable but I will stick to my Nadurra First Fill
It will test you a bit with the heat but deeply complex. Interesting dram, I liked it but not my favorite scotch.
this one was great strong stuff but even out to a smooth finish. I can camper it to my Glenlevit Nadura 16 year cask
I think this was the best of the three in the tasting box. I wouldn't pay the price for it though, especially when I can get the 12 year-old Glenfarclas for much, much less - and enjoy it more!
If you like Maccallans you'll love this... I'm not a big Maccallans fan so your on your own...
I very much enjoyed this, especially with a splash of water. Sherry, a hint of chocolate, and a strong but pleasant finish.
This is the real deal......together with aberlour a'bunadh we people; called "sherry bitches" have a reason to live, thx Scottland!!!
Fair cask strength, not so complex as one would like though. Best is the light sweet after taste that lasts long and nice.
Very strong but only at the end. Otherwise the spiral was spot on
Good but leaves a after taste
Good but strong in alcohol. This is a whisky to finish the night
Stronger than I usually like but a decent scotch all the same.
Not as smooth as I had hoped. Lots of pepper, long finish... not my favorite
Not bad, just really don't understand the draw of cask strength.
Strong sherry and spice. Really lovely.
High scent of alcohol naturally with a sharp bite yet mellows calmly with water or a smidgen of ice. Mild aftertaste and sweetness.
Very nice drink to enjoy life with.
Interesting, heavy start, nice finish
Tasty but potent.
Glenfarclas is unique. This scotch has their signature flavor, with a sherry punch. Strong and lingering. Very solid.
Not the sherry bomb glenfarclas I expected. Needs water for sure. On the nose I got, sour, yeast and dried fruits. I got raisins and plum wine on the palate and a short finish. I think I need a couple more sit downs with this.
Big, cask strength pleasant caramel behind the power
