Tasting notes by Serge Valentin (WhiskyFun.com) 91/100

From when we were sill doing labels for friends - casually. This IS Glenfarclas. Looks like I never published any 'official' notes for this baby from the good ol' times, so here I am, late as ever.... (sorry Luc)...

Colour: gold

Nose: Coconut wine in Glenfarclas? Sure, when it's ex-fresh bourbon. There's also a vanilla-ed creaminess, surely a lot of sunflower oil, some nougat, fudge, halva, peanut syrup (a new thing I've just found in a shop here in Alsace, love it even if it's a little sweet for me), honeycomb, custard… With water: wee touches of resins, saps and yellow flowers. Our dear buttercups ('Do you like butter?')

Mouth (neat): bright and syrupy at the same time, with some coconut again (not that vulgar plankish thing that you would sometimes get from fresh American oak), banana foam, apricots and really a lot of honey and preserved mirabelles. Forgot to mention quinces. I'm not sure I would have said 'Glenfarclas' earlier in… 2010. With water: gets really sweet and creamy, cake-y, with even more quinces and mirabelles. I wouldn't have said Glenfarclas, I would have said Balvenie (have you no sense of shame, S.?)

Finish: soft landing with the same combo in action.

Comments: as Methuselah would have said, those were the days.
