“Our friend Luc, who was born in 1968 and always loved Glenfarclas, keeps monitoring a few casks from ‘his’ vintage. This is his latest selection. Colour: full gold. Nose: right, that was to be expected. It’s a fairly ‘different’ Glenfarclas, with a very subtle sherriness (there’s very little downright ‘sherry’ in fact) and rather a style that would be akin to some old refill hogshead of high quality. We’re not very far from the best Glen Grants or Caperdonichs in that style, although this is a tad oilier and flintier, as well as kind of fatter. So we have honeys, plum pies, orange blossom water and ripe apricots, then quite some Virginia tobacco, old polished wood and, maybe, touches of rich trappist beer. I’m not saying that because Luc is from Belgium. Also wee touches of cinchona. The whole is very complex and kind of ‘anti-wham-bam’ despite its bigness. Mouth: very interesting and quite unusual again. Starts on quite a lot of sappy oaky, chlorophyll, honeydew, then goes more towards kumquats and blood oranges as well as, perhaps, guavas, becoming rounder and rounder over time. This phenomenon of some big oak somewhat disappearing is very unusual, usually oak becomes louder and louder in these old whiskies in my experience. Anyway, this is quite perfect. Touches of cardamom in the background, also coriander… Finish: long and rather lemony now. Amazingly, the oak keeps quiet and lets the jammy fruits do all the talking. A saltiness in the aftertaste as well as, okay, rather more oak. Comments: unusual and very superb – but that was to be expected. One extra-point for the originality. Felicitaties! SGP:562 – 94 points.”
