Farge Lukt Smak
Farge ikke vurdert The nose is reminiscent of relaxing in an old leather armchair, while eating walnuts and chocolate-covered raisins. It has a sweet initial taste – orange segments dipped in liquid chocolate – then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar at the back of the mouth.
Ettersmak: The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans.
Oppsummering: Let this whisky breathe a little or and a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram

Farge Lukt Smak
Dark amber with red hues Ultra-typical old sherried Glenfarclas, full of chocolate, raisins, prunes and then touches of mint, liquorice and varnish/pine resin. Also hints of blackcurrant buds, blackberry jam and finally a little coffee, smoked ham and toasted bread. Also a little walnut stain and maybe poppy seeds. In short, a classic. Excellent attack, with a flavourful oakiness (black pepper sauce alike) and various liqueur-filled chocolates. Chocolate-covered prunes. Goes on with fresh and clean notes of blood oranges, raspberry liqueur and just a few herbal notes that may hint at well-aged chartreuse. Hints of cough syrup.
Ettersmak: Long, more on fruit skins and jams. Very pleasant fruity and resinous bitterness. Faint tannicity and liquorice in the aftertaste.
Oppsummering: Comments: I think it’s a good example of an old malt where an obvious oakiness brings more substance and complexity. Very well composed and worth its fair price, no doubt about that.
