- Glenfarclas 1990 Family Casks Release VIII
Glenfarclas 1990 Family Casks Release VIII Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. Single cask sherry higshead #5099 bottled October 2011. 615 bottles.
A strong nose. Prominent oloroso sherry on the edge of the glass, bitter cocoa beans, chocolate macaroons.
Big flavours, sweet iced tea, giving way to spiciness of cinnamon and almond powder, and then to wave after wave of fantastic sherry and port sensations.
Heavy finish, triple choclate cheesecake, not a very long finish but you certainly get all the flavours crammed in there. Everything you want in one big hit.
