Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Orange and apricot…
Glenfarclas is still one of the few Scottish distilleries that still extensively use sherry oak for maturing all their malts in. And this mid aged, 12yo malt really shows these benefits of this maturation process: combining fruity oak flavours with bright spirit and rich malt.
From WhiskyReviews, “Rich honey arrival followed by some woody spice. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Orange and apricot. Oloroso sherry. Slightly nutty. Dry oak and allspice finish”.
