Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon pouring, this whisky displays a luscious deep gold hue, indicating its intrinsic richness. The spirit is marked by viscous legs that glide slowly down the glass walls, indicative of its robust cask-strength nature.
The nose is extraordinarily complex, yet well-balanced. There's an initial burst of dark fruits, with plum and fig leading the charge, followed closely by honeycomb and vanilla. As it breathes, undertones of oak and spice—specifically cinnamon and nutmeg—intertwine elegantly with the fruitiness, creating an aromatic bouquet that is nuanced and compelling.
The Glenfarclas 105 bursts forth on the palate with an explosion of flavors, as befits a cask-strength spirit. Sherry sweetness is prominent, followed by layers of raisin, toffee, and dark chocolate. The high alcohol content makes its presence known but does so without overwhelming the intricate tapestry of flavors. A hint of orange peel and cherry provide a citrusy twist, accompanied by a subtle, yet discernible layer of peat smoke.
The finish is long, resonant, and warm, a veritable symphony of taste sensations. Expect lingering notes of dark fruit, spicy oak, and a final whisper of peat smoke to round out the experience.
Available exclusively at Third Base Market & Spirits, the Glenfarclas Cask Strength 105 is a true collector's item and a testament to the prowess of Scottish craftsmanship. This is a dram designed for the discerning whisky enthusiast who values depth, complexity, and unfiltered power. Dilution with water or a splash of ice opens up further dimensions, making it a multifaceted whisky to explore and enjoy. It serves as a glowing representation of what the Speyside region, and indeed Glenfarclas, can offer to the world of whisky.
