LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
This is a special relabeling of the (regular?) Glenfarclas 12-Year-Old. TASTING NOTE: Nose: a wonderfully fresh mix of grape and mint. Taste: light, youthful, playful, mouthwatering. Less plodding honey, more vibrant Demerara and juiced-up butterscotch. Finish: long, with soft almost ice-cream style vanillas with a grapey topping. A superb re-working of an always trustworthy malt. This dramatic change in shape works a treat and suits the malt perfectly. What a sensational success.
