This limited Edition Glenfarclas 105 has been aged for 20 years and bottled at cask strength 60% vol. It is Strong, rich oak, a 20 yo copper still. As 105 should be! Big Powerful aromas, of course be a little wary it is 60% alc. A very typical Glenfarclas nose, demerara sugar, figs. The end bit of a Christmas cake, a little drier than the middle but you get the extra sugar. Remarkably smooth for a 60% whisky. More sweetness in the front of your mouth giving way to bitter sweetness. Chocolate covered coffee beans spring to mind sweet then melting into bitterness. Lots of fruit, brandy flavours are very apparent, delicate sherry tones also coming through after a while in the glass.
Lovely long finish, the age really coming through here over the strength, definitely a dram to savour as the finish will last a very long time.
