Fittingly, I received this Glenfarclas 2008 Christmas Edition whisky as a Christmas present (thank you!) and I enjoyed it quite a bit! 😉
Color: Deep gold
Nose: Raisins, apple juice and cinnamon. The alcohol is still noticeable in this relatively young whisky.
Taste: Creamy mouth feel, if you take a big sip. Vanilla, followed by dark chocolate and spices.
Finish: Medium in length. Dark chocolate and a bitter fruitiness persist the longest.
Comments: Nice sherried whisky. Neither complex nor strong, but very enjoyable nevertheless — especially for the price! Drinking it to music by Doyle Bramhall II.
Rating: I rated this whisky 83 out of 100.
