Though their house style of whisky has been defined as heavy on the Sherry casks, Glenfarclas doesn't fall in the sticky-sweet-am-I-drinking-rum style of whisky. The malted barley is always present and the barrel aging offers more than just dried fruit. So they've got that going for them, which is nice.

Tasting Notes

"Apple cider, honey, wool, and roasted barley make your acquaintance before dried apricots and wood spices take over. Malted barley and more honey greet you in the middle saddled with a pinch of tobacco. The finish is dry and has a lingering taste of mint."
