Glenfarclas / Single Malt Scotch 40 Year 750mL
"A remarkably well-priced addition to the Glenfarclas range, this 40yo has been simply-packaged in line with the rest of the standard bottlings from the distillery, and has been bottled at the perfect drinking strength of 46%. A 40yo sherried Speyside designed for drinking rather than sitting on a mantlepiece or in a display cabinet - bravo. Awarded a very well-merited Gold Medal at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2010."
Color: Rich dark mysterious Gold
Aroma: Antique leather, walnuts and chocolate covered raisins.
Palate: A sweet initial taste, orange segments, chocolate. Then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar.
Finish: The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans. Let the whisky breathe a little or add a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram.
