They where not joking when they said sherry bomb, love it

Eric,
I liked this more when I first started drinking scotch. I love the Glenfarclas flavor profile, but sometimes I feel like I need to work pretty hard to recognize it in the 12. Still, an easy drinker that I usually keep on hand.

Very nice Highland, good for those special occasions with a mixed crowd.

Grant,
My favorite for a sip with some dried fruit and nuts. The complexity of the sweetness is delightful and the Sherry gives it a nice body
 
Matt
Matt,
It's tough for me to give this a 6/10, because by most objective measures, this is a very good whisky. I personally didn't like it, but I'm also not into the heavily sherried Scotches, and that's basically all this is. To me, this just tasted like it needed a few more years in the barrel. Very alcohol forward. Needed to sit out for a very long time, and even then, the first taste is all alcohol. The finish is very smooth and nice, but overall, I'd go for the 17 year and avoid the 12 altogether. A classic iteration of Scotch, but one I'd personally avoid.

A good single malt, with no apparent peat or smokey flavor notes.

Chris,
Glenfarclas makes the best sherry matured whisky in the business IMO.
 
Doug
Doug,
Sweet, light sherry, a hint of smoke with oak and vanilla on the finish…good body, slightly oily…sweet nose that is a bit like apple pie to me. Really really good.

Nice sherrie speyside! If you're new to scotch...a must try

Very nice and tasty one.
 
Ken
Ken,
Aroma of fruit and leather, smooth and syrup like on the tongue. A flavorful sweet honey at first and a little smoky finish. Very nice.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The perfect malt-heavy whisky. Had to let it oxidize a bit to lose some of the gas notes it came with, but once it mellowed it was pure joy. Classic, malty goodness. Normally the malt monsters I've tried come with too much chocolate notes or over-the-top wood notes, but this one lets the barley shine.

Excellent rich flavor with just a small bite. Wonderful from beginning to end. I sampled this for the 1st time on a flight to Scotland and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will add it to my bar.

Fresh scent of vanilla and honey with a hint of Carmel. Great Speyside scotch.
 
Enoch
Enoch,
This is one of my most favorite favorites. Smooth on the tongue, a spicy bite of alcohol at the end, and a long-lasting finish. Both sweet and stout for a perfect-anytime sip.
 
Charles
Charles,
Always smooth from start to finish. Caramelized sugar and pears with hints of vanilla. Slight spice on the finish. My personal favorite (thus far).

Smooth on the tongue initially then the spice settles in, the vanilla and caramel stood out right away. Overall, delicious and lucky that it's the first bottle I bought from Flaviar!

Glenfarclas has a knack for creating beautifully consistent Speysiders, and the 12 year old is a solid and beautiful one. I think a better 12 than Macallan, it has dark fruit notes that compliment the chewy mouthfeel giving this 12 some more depth than the Macallan counterpart. Wonderful stuff.

I dunno. I like me whiskey more of an Irish. Might be worth a try
