Sherry bomb…. on steroids…
Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength
Glenfarclas’ brute of a malt. The 105 series has been a firm favourite in Australia, always intriguing, sometimes frustrating but always oh so very tasty.
Believe it or not this was first released in 1968, being the first commercial bottling of a cask strength whisky. I would love to get my hands on one of them!
And if you want a funny tale: I had one a few years ago that when I opened it, it sprayed both me and my desk in high quality malt! True story.
From ScotchReview, “The mouthfeel is semi-slick/slightly oily, and the taste is a Sherry bomb…. on steroids. It’s one of the highest proofed single malt scotches in standard release, and as a guy who likes high proof whiskies this is one of the best. Sweet, powerful, but also somehow more subtle than my guilty pleasure, Bowmore’s Devil’s Cask III”.
