Whisky Discovery #78

Glenfarclas 25 Year Old (43% abv)
Speyside Single Malt
Circa £98.00 70cl

Glenfarclas 25 Year Old
The final dram at the Glenfarclas stand and for our fourth of the afternoon we were presented with the 25 Year Old.

A rich full bodied whisky. Again the tasting notes are from their website:

Colour: Amber with dark gold highlights.

Nose: Complex, yet refined, delicately peated, with fresh tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins.

Flavour: Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither is overpowering. A powerful nutty smokiness.

Finish: Intense, long lasting, dry smoky and malty. A beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the flavour of the 25 Years Old.

Comment: A great after-dinner whisky so rich and full that it is a dessert in itself, with a finish that goes on forever.

Whilst it certainly didn't disappoint, I much preferred the 15 Year Old, and went back for a second taste afterwards.
