Powerful sherry and hard to describe but what I would call earthy. There is some cigar smoke, chocolate , blackberry, plum pudding, figs, and treacle toffee.
A massive and intensive dark fruit blast, almost like a smoothie. Very creamy one of the most full fat type of palates you can get. Its all on dark fruits black cherry, blackberry, blackcurrants, dark red plum skins, hints of almonds, slightly nutty and it is crisp but with an oily profile also.
Long, sweet, luscious
With water :-
The palate is slightly less fragrant, still full bodied and more rounded now.
This is my second bottle of this, if you hold it neat in your mouth for around 30 seconds, it has in my view one of the best taste experiences out there.
This review was as soon as bottle was opened.
A great bottle, if it was labelled Glenfarclas for the same quality it would cost you £800+
My rating of 94 is down to taste and on price, this cost me around £250 from the distillery last September, sadly they are all gone now so glad I managed to get one of the last available.
