Glenfarclas - 40 Year OldSpeyside Malt
Colour: Rich dark mysterious Gold.
Nose: Antique leather, walnuts and chocolate covered raisins.
Flavour: A sweet initial taste, orange segments, chocolate. Then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar.
Finish: The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans. Let the whisky breathe a little or add a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram.
Comment: This new Glenfarclas 40 Years Old, bottled in March 2010, has been awarded a score of 95/100 by the Malt Advocate magazine.
