Glenfarclas 10.


N: Candied and dried fruits. Oranges, and sadly today I am getting an odd musky cologne smell.

T: Sweet, maple syrup, and spices ( cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon).

F: Way too spirity.


This bottle hopefully is just in an off phase. Really hasn't been that good lately.

Not big peat, or big sherry, but rather a touch of a peat and a touch of sherry, but I still think tis a very christmas time dram.

Benromach 10.

N: Benedictine and Brandy, with a touch of cigar smoke. Other than that quite a bit of boiled cabbage.

T: The candy goodness you would expect from a sherried whisky, dried rasins, touch of oranges, and spice, to go with a good bit of sugary sweetness. Just a touch of smoke to make things seem a little dry.

F: A lot of the raisins and oranges and spices, mixed with a slightly more prnouced smoke dryness.

95-15 SV UCF Glenlivet Cask 144361 ff Sherry

N: A lot of very warm spices. Slight touch of actual sherry. Almost like a spiced syrup aroma.

T: So incredibly sweet and spiced. Good dose of raisins, figs, and touch of dried apricots.

F: A wonderful continuation of the palate. Continues on for a decent time.
