Actually I find the 15yo a very nice dram and a good price/quality ratio. Of your choices I would go for the 25yo - very good spicy sherry dram.
The 21yo is lighter - a different bourbon/sherry cask ratio I was told at a recent fair - an excellent tipple but it's perhaps less interesting or something.
I'm not a fan of the 105 - frankly I have never understood it's good standing here - I find it having much too high abv for what it is.
12yo - only had a quick taste, but nice sherried dram.
Have not tried the 17yo.
However, if ever I am traveling abroad I will be on a mad lookout for it!
Seems like a great range, there's a vote for every expression. Guess I can't go wrong. I'm just surprised that only one voter preferred that I don't post polls
I have a bottle of 105 sitting on my shelf waiting to be opened. I'm pretty excited to try it, so I might open it next.
Shoganai, where did you end up getting the ‘farclas?

The 15 and 30 are not available in the US, although Glenfarclas thought I should be able to get the 30 by talking to a distributor.
Now taste the 1954, and be truly amazed! Damn it's great!!

I just wish it was mor e readily available in the supermarket chains here in the UK.
Mark have you tried buying online there are a few really good on line companies with great variety of distilleries and their expressions. The goodies always turn up within 48 hours.

I often shop online otherwise i wouldnt have tasted half the malt whiskies that i have. Normally my online purchases are usually more expensive bottlings. £20 to £30 bottling doesnt justify the £7 or £8 postage for me.
I maybe wasnt clear with what i had wrote. I should have said that i wished that the likes of the bottom end of the Glenfarclas range such as the 12 year old was readily available in supermarkets if it was i would have purchased it more often.
I also noticed that the 8 yr old had a fine flavour that surprised me for it's youth.

You'll be glad you did, such a great whisky!
It is one I have enjoyed before, but it has been about two years. In fact, it has been a couple of years, I think, since I have even had one!

I think they, SMWS, might still also have a 36y now, for 100£, that's a damn good price!!!
Damn nice whisky as well Di Blasi , had one on my last visit .
Edit .....Found my notes
Current Glenfarclas on the list (1.135 , 36yo , 54.7 , Nov 1970) , A very deep amber , this was the most sherried Farclas i’ve had off the society , huge Christmas cake on the nose ( Spices , dried fruits etc) . Slightly burnt Treacle Toffee and spices on the palate with a long , smooth spicy finish . A wee bit too sherried for my liking but still a cracking dram , with a wee drop of water the slight burnt taste vanished
