“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.

Springs honours the role of water in the production of whisky. It’s aged in ex-sherry casks.

Other reviews... No comprendo much about this no-age-stated series, I’m afraid, but I thought the ‘Passion’ edition was very good back in 2015 (WF 85). Colour: gold. Nose: it’s a bit like a ‘105’ at a lower strength, if that rings a bell to you. Nice sharp yet rounded malty sherriness and touches of earth, tobacco, and leather. There. Mouth: yeah, very good, bright, full of zesty oranges and tangerines, with a layer of sweet white wine (Sauternes-like) and notes of tinned apricots and muscat grapes. Some sweeter sherry must have been involved. Finish: rather long, with added spices and pepper. It’s fresh and bright, which is obviously good (and leaves room for a second measure). Oranges in the aftertaste. Comments: hate to give good scores to NAS, but remember the NAS issues are about transparency, not quality. I know I’m not preaching in the desert, am I? 46% Alc./Vol.
