Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In its presentation, the Glenfarclas 10 Year boasts an inviting straw gold hue, characteristic of its time spent maturing in Oloroso sherry casks. When swirled, the whisky demonstrates a viscosity indicative of a well-balanced mouthfeel.
On the nose, the whisky is redolent of dried fruits, predominantly sultanas and apricots, intertwined with nuances of vanilla, caramel, and subtle oak. A faint floral undertone—reminiscent of honeysuckle—adds depth and allure to the aromatic profile.
Upon tasting, the Glenfarclas 10 Year reveals a tapestry of flavors that ranges from citrus zest and orchard fruits to richer notes of malt, chocolate, and winter spice. The initial sweetness of fruitcake and brown sugar transitions smoothly into mid-palate complexity marked by nutmeg, clove, and a touch of espresso bitterness.
The finish is notably long, leaving a lasting impression of oak-infused warmth alongside a delicate balance of fruitiness and spice. Overtones of malted barley round out the experience, creating a pleasantly satisfying conclusion.
Medium to full-bodied, this whisky offers a rich, creamy texture that coats the palate, amplifying its multifaceted taste profile.

Nice light approachable whisky. Creamy light toast and nuts, then plenty of floral and vinous sherry notes. It's soft and delicate, which is lovely, but it's not very complex and it's not even trying to be powerful. That's perfectly fine for those who dig this approach, but at this price I'd like more personality in the glass.
