Glenfarclas Advent Calendar: Day 10
Ho Ho Ho!
Today it’s the turn of the 21 year old, this is slightly tamer than yesterday’s dram at 43% vol.
Fruity nose. A little fresh orange and spice – cinnamon and a drizzle of vanilla essence. Not sure where this came from, but there’s a real outdoorsy fresh scent once left to open. The palate is quite malty. There’s a very slight bitter sugary taste. The malt is very prominent, with some chocolate buttons for good measure.
The spice is quite warming.
There’s a long finish on this dram, it’s ever so slightly nutty and a little dry.
I’m quite eager to get my hands on tomorrow’s dram…it being the 11th and all that 🙂
