Inside the Glenfarclas Advent Calendar: Day 7

Another day, another dram. And today it’s the 17 year old.

This has quite a fruity nose, perhaps a little cherry. There’s a touch of vanilla too with some light spices. Its palate gives spice and some lonely oak flavours. Malty notes play on the palate too and of course there are sherry flavours as well as fruit. There’s a slightly oily viscous coating in my mouth. The finish is warm from the spices and there’s a taste of the oak remaining.
