Tasting Notes: By Tasos Protoapapas


Nose: The dominant aromas of sherry and orange peel compete each other and override the more soft dry apricots, followed by cereals, wood and dark chocolate aromas which need more effort to discover them.

Palate: Rich and sweet taste with intense fruity character. The delightful sherry is infused with hints of raisins and citrus combined with gentle and light peat notes.

Finish: Long. Powerful and spicy aftertaste equally interesting to the previous sense.

Fabulous Dram


Producer's Informations


Colour: A rich golden amber.

Nose: Complex, sherried, deliciously peated, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit.

Flavour: Full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours.

Finish: Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky, and distinguished.

Comment: With greater complexity than our younger whiskies, this is a great whisky drinker's whisky.

We bottle this at 46% simply because my grandfather preferred it at this strength. It's still a family favourite.

In his 2007 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray gave Glenfarclas 15 Years Old a score of 95/100, one of the highest scores he has awarded.
