Glenfarclas 17 year old tasting notes:
Nose: Oh that starts really nice! Butterscotch and caramel, mixed with dried fruit. Some lovely fresh dates here and honey as well. Macadamia nuts. A hint of citrus on the background. The nose is very subtle and quite soft.
Taste: Still a bit of butterscotch, but quite less than the nose. Clearly a lot of sherry influences, dried fruits and than mainly raisins. But all very well integrated. It is spicier than the nose; a hint of black pepper, nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon. Also liquorice. A little bit of smoke in the background.
Finish: Beautiful mid-long finish, with a touch of oak and all the above mentioned spices. Also some sweetness from the sherry influences and a bit nutty. Nice!
