“Passion”, “Springs” and “Team” are part of a trilogy of collectible bottlings from the Glenfarclas Legend of Speyside range. Originally exclusive to the German market, each bottling highlights an essential aspect of the whisky making process, reflected in the characterful packaging. Even better, these releases are said to offer more than an echo of the house style, for much less than what you might be paying for a mid-range age statement. "Passion" honours the energy and enthusiasm of the Grant Family, and the label features John and George Grant happily sampling a few drams! Matured in Sherry casks.

Other reviews... Well well well, Glenfarclas did not do any finishes (hurray), but it seems that they are going NAS just like the others. Or are they only testing the market? (yeah I know, the 105…) Colour: pale gold. Nose: toasted bread, toasted brioche, toasted cake, maple syrup, then dried fruits (figs, quince jelly, dates, bananas…) It’s a simple profile, but there isn’t anything to complain about. Mouth: no, it’s good stuff. Malty, nutty, brioche-y, with a thin slice of mint jelly and chlorophyll. Easy, balanced, and I have to say, beyond reproach at the price. Finish: good length. Cake, nuts, oranges, mint drops. Comments: it’s not very oloroso-ish, so possibly refill, and probably not the most complex Glenfarclas ever, but the gentleman who composed this sure did a great job. There’s NAS and there’s NAS. 46% Alc./Vol. 85 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
