A trio of miniature from Glenfarclas which contains:1 x 5cl Glenfarclas 10 year old,1 x 5cl Glenfarclas 12 year old,1 x 5 cl Glenfarclas 105 cask strength.
This subtly sophisticated Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a superb pre-dinner drink; try it with a few drops of water.Nose - Aromatic, vanilla, cut flowers and beneath, a clean, toasty note. Increasingly sweet and creamy, with fresh citrus, lemon cheesecake.Body - Light, smooth.Palate - Crisp mid-palate then butter icing, lemon cheesecake and freesias.Finish - Herbal and drying, a little like potpourri.
A complex and well-structured whisky, it was aged in bourbon, sherry and Limousin oak casks then non chill filtered. A fiery golden amber in colour, the nose has aromas of bonfire smoke and smoky, spicy sea spray. The palate has powerful peat smoke and spicy sea spray notes with flavours of liquorice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
