Review #36: Glenfarclas 12

This is a review of Glenfarclas 12 bottled at 43%. The sample for this review came from my own bottle.

N: Sweet raisins, strawberry jam, candied oranges, lemon, after some time it becomes more malty with some walnuts. Light and sweet nose that is not overly complex.

P: Fresh red fruits, raisins, honey, malt, lemon, some ginger and slightly earthy.

F: Medium. Raisins, honey and some ginger.

Overall: A solid straightforward dram. It’s not spectacular but is a nice, light, simple, easy drinking intro to sherried single malts. Some additional richness, complexity, and a longer finish would really improve this but as it stands is a nice dram that I reached for when I wasn’t in the mood to be particularly challenged.

Score: 79
