Glenfarclas 105 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the 105 referring to its alcohol content in British Proof, which equates now to 60% ABV, is aged for 8-10 years in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks. Glenfarclas was the first distillery to release a cask strength single malt whisky, way back in 1968. With plenty of flavour, assertive and spicy, Glenfarclas 105 is a typical Speside malt on steroids!
Nose: Definitely on the sherry side. Caramelized nuts, almost praline. Old leather. Sweet bakery notes: creme caramel, marmalade. Palate: Velvety, sweet at start then spices and chocolate burst. Ginger, red chili. Marzipan. Long, sweet and nutty finish.
