A wonderfully sherried 15 year old dram from Glenfarclas, boasting oodles of dried fruit notes. It’s bottled at 46% ABV simply because this was the strength that George Grant’s grandfather preferred it at. Happily, this also results in the Speysider boasting a big, juicy, Christmas cake profile. A fabulously complex Scotch while also being easily drinkable.
Nose:Intense, powerful sherry. Cream sherry, certainly – Pedro Ximenez? almost… a touch of peppermint? An almost rancio quality to this. Smells older than 15.
Palate:Raisins, more sherry, orange peel, walnuts, dates.
Finish:Incredibly long, complex, more of the Walnuts again.
Overall:Water draws out sweetness. This is Christmas cake, not whisky. Simply astonishing.
