Inside the Glenfarclas Advent Calendar: Day 8

Day 8 and Sarah was still quite sober… well it’s a whisky diary of sorts this month.

And as the eagle eyed amongst you will have spotted, today is the 18 year old (43% vol.)

On the nose, a hint of cinnamon and toffee. Then there’s some lovely fruit notes in the way of apple. There’s a bit of fudge too and I’m not even making any 😉

The palate. Smooth and malty. Lots of malt flavours in fact. Caramel and wisps of vanilla. There’s a bitterness there and raisins in fudge.

Medium length finish with a slight waxy mouthfeel and a touch of warmth from some underlying spice.
