Glenfarclas 40yo: I Want One!

Oh my god! Even a week after finishing this sample, I still can’t get it out of my head. What an exceptional whisky! The cool thing is that I also tasted this whisky about six months ago. But this time I tasted it blind, and was as blown away by it as I was the first time. That is a true testament to the quality of this whisky. What exactly am I talking about? The official bottling of Glenfarclas 40 years old.

I’m afraid they won’t do the whisky justice, but here are my tasting notes anyway.

Glenfarclas 40

Glenfarclas 40yo (OB, 46%, +/- 2012)

Nose: Super glue, mandarine, sultanas, raisins, caramel and barley. It just goes on foreve!. I think I nosed it for about an hour before I finally dared to sip.
Taste: A bit dry and woody, but exactly at the right level. It is spicy and fruity at the same time, with a pleasant bitterness and some pineapple.
Finish: Coffee, pure chocolate and lighter aromas such as apple and ripe banana. It ends with a surprising cigar tobacco flavour.

Conclusion
The Glenfarclas 40yo is phenomenal. And great value for money as well. It can be bought 250/300 euros. Yes, that's a lot of money, but relatively cheap for a 40yo OB. I think I might just have to get a bottle myself.

Thanks to Yapi for the sample.
