Famous as one of Speyside’s biggest, most masculine whiskies and one of Scotland's most richly Sherry-influenced expressions, Glenfarlcas 15 will have lovers of traditional Macallan bottlings reminiscing. This whisky has been matured in 60% x-Sherry casks, with the remainder x-Bourbon, but with a difference. The latter barrels are shaved back in order to minimise their flavour input, putting the focus almost completely on the Sherry. Jim Murray describes Glenfarclas 15 as one of Scotland’s most sublime malts with a rating of 95 points, amongst the highest he awards (see his review below).
Keep in mind that the cost of Sherry casks is sky rocketing. Expect to be paying much, much more for whiskies like this in the years to come. Recall the 18 year Old Sherry Wood Macallan of times gone by (currently fetching around $300/bottle Australian - if you can find it) and you begin to get some perspective of the value on offer here. Our advice is to stock up! Note: Our rating for this whisky was from a sample bottle that had been opened for some time. We would anticipate a fresh bottle to be even better.
Other reviews... Nose: 23 - Such is the intensity if the fruit and sugar-rich barley, there is an element of medium ester Jamaican pot still rum to this, a feeling intensified by an orangey-oak influence that seems greater than 15 years. The top shelf sherry, though, is of a classical type rarely found these days, though common 30 years ago; Taste: 24 - Succulent and stupendous. barley sugar shows first, then a sherry input that borders on intense but dissapates as the spicy oak digs in; Finish: 24 - long, chewy, a tad oily and fades with a wonderful coffee- vanilla combination and a late surge of something bourbony; Balance: 24 - Eureka!!! The 15yo back to how i can remember it in the past. Some of you may have been scared away by some less than impressive recent bottlings. its safe to come back because now it has been returned to its position as one of Scotlands most sublime malts. The quality of the sherry is astonishing; its interaction with the barley is a wonderous joy. Go find and get...46% - Notes Sourced from Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2010 >
