On the nose it has the signature toasty slightly burnt maltiness of Glenfarclas, but a lot more subdued then on younger expressions or the cask strenght version. There is lots of crisp sweet green apples and fresh honey here also. Maybe some raspberry too along with oakiness, gentle. I am hesitant to add water since it is low abv, 43%, also nothing on the bottle says it is un-chillfiltered nor natural colored i have to assume it is not.
I am a not big waterer so i am not gonna add any.
And yes this is noticable on the palate too. The arrival is great. It is bold, it is rich it is malty, but the developement does not shine here. It gets a little too thin to be honest.
And the finish is unimpressive, it is light oak tanniness, with light maltiness.
I am a little harsh on this probably but only because there is no reason for Glenfarclas to not to present it as an integrity bottling as Ralfy would say.
The modern market and the modern palate of us, whisky drinkers is just over and bored of these inferior bottles that they are putting out.
We pay a quite the amount for bottles these years, and they should at least deliver quality for the price!
I would rather have the 105 version instead of this to be honest any day of the week. This expression is a sorry excuse of a 21 year old single malt.
