I decided to buy myself a whisky advent calendar this year having seen so many of them last year. I kinda really treated myself and bought the Glenfarclas one.
So day one was the 2009 (bottled 2016 – cask 1805) and this was an exclusive for Drinks by the Dram, it is 59.9% vol.
A delicious “come sip me” nose… rich fruit and cake spices. Rich sticky sugar and spice and all things nice! A little vanilla and a little bit of ginger. The palate is smooth and warming. The rich fruit flavours on the tongue and perhaps a slice of clootie dumpling. Nice finish with a delicious warming spice, some ginger remaining too.
