Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring Glenfarclas 17 into a glass unveils a dark amber hue, slightly veering towards mahogany. The legs are slow to form and lazily glide down the glass walls, telegraphing a whisky of substance and depth.
The olfactory experience of Glenfarclas 17 is a complex one. Rich, sherry-infused fruitiness is immediately evident, backed by a luxurious combination of sweet spices and aged oak. Nutmeg and cinnamon play alongside dried fruits like raisins and apricots, all wrapped up in a cozy blanket of oakiness.
The tasting journey commences with an exquisite melding of sherry sweetness and oaky dryness. Dark chocolate, cherries, and plums take the lead, followed by a symphony of spices—clove, black pepper, and a dash of ginger. Subtle undertones of leather and tobacco reveal the dram's age and sophisticated maturation process. Despite its complexity, the whisky is harmoniously balanced, neither overly sweet nor excessively oaky.
The finish is long, warming, and enduring. Notes of sherry and spices persist, gradually giving way to a more earthy, woody aftertaste. A faint wisp of smoke appears at the very end, a fitting denouement to a complex and satisfying tasting experience.
Exclusively available at Third Base Market & Spirits, Glenfarclas 17 Year Single Malt Scotch is a must-have for any Scotch aficionado.
