— Loved it. Super smooth.

— The most unique whisky I’ve ever tasted. Very light on the palate. I expected something much stronger and it hit me with this crisp initial thing. I guess it was the sherry. Delightful is the only way I can describe it.

— Amazing, smooth peaty and full of flavour

Kestrel
Kestrel,
A bit underwhelmed. First Glenfarclas that I have had in my cabinet, and maybe I over-expected. That said, I just finished the bottle, so by no means was it "bad". Felt a bit bland to me, with no real exciting notes.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Excellent. Smooth. Lays easy on the palate. Sherry definitely up front but then finishes with sweet notes and lingering flavor. Great whisky
 
William
William,
Loved it. Super smooth.
 
Mat
Mat,
Really nice whisky with rich sherried aromas and flavours. A little on the pricey side for the quality imo, but really enjoyed it all the same.

Mirosław,
Really liked it.

Simonas,
A complex aroma, almost too much to distinguish individual aromas. Nice and buttery with a nice finish. One of my favourites so far
 
Michael
Michael,
Interesting! Full body, buttery. I think the sherry is a little bit overpowering. A splash of water helps. I would drink again, but not sure I would purchase the bottle at that price point.
 
Roope
Roope,
Tasted in a set. Sherry is dominant, with strong red apples and oak.

Saku,
Exceptional quality with rich taste.

Interesante. Aromas a frutas secas y madera. Retrogusto potente.

Not up to par with other much younger scotches

How do you know what monkey piss tastes like?

David,
I rate whisky by taste. As this was from a sherry cask, and I love whiskies from sherry casks it was perfect.
 
James
James,
A nice group of flavors, especially the sherry. This ends with a nice finish that makes this one a favorite
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Go with the 12 year. Can taste a bit of the raisin here. Good. But not twice as good as the 12.
ADAM
ADAM,
I must say I disagree. I feel the spirit came to fruition in 21 years. The 12 is also an excellent choice. But mmm that 21. The 25 is not so much worth the jump in price in my humble opinion.
Anne
Anne,
Great flavor. Best neat
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Nice! Full flavored and sweet with a touch of brandy and fruitiness.

One of the best experiences I had, a great scotch with full flavor

Excellent, smooth and well worth the wait
 
John
John,
Not my cup o tea, it is probably one of the best for those with tolerable palats, but it was a little too harsh in the finish for me.

Literally one of the greats.

The 21 year old is awesome and is the best I have ever tasted.

By far the best in the series! Don't waste time on the 10 and 12. Pay the extra for the 17 or 21.
