N.V. Glenfarclas 40 Years Old

Incredible value for a whisky of this age. Launched during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in 2010, it is packaged simply to match the Glenfarclas range, but what lies within won a Gold Medal at the Malt Maniacs Awards in the year of its launch and received 95 points from Malt Advocate magazine.

Nose: old Demerara rum laced with well aged oloroso. Spicy, deep though checked by vanilla. Taste: toasty fruitcake with just the right degree of burnt raisin; again the spices are central to the plot though now a Jamaican Blue Mountain/Mysore medium roast mix makes an impressive entrance. Finish: long, with the oak not just ticking every box, but doing so with a flourish . The Melton Hunt cake finale is divine. Balance: couldn't help but laugh: this sample was sent by the guys at Glenfarclas after they spotted that I had last year called their disappointing 40-year-old a "freak". I think we have both proved a point.
