Glenfarclas 10yo

“Christmas cake in a glass”, trumpets the Glenfarclas marketing department. It is difficult to disagree. But their 10-year-old retains enough of its youthful sweetness to break from the shackles of sherry-cask-imposed rum-and-raisin flavours: there is honey here, creamy toffee, and a little cinnamon spice. It is a light, fresh dram considering the level of sherry influence; caster sugar and cloves, with a whisper of soft aromatic smoke like a struck match…coffee-flavoured milk chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth, start here.

Glenfarclas 105

No, it’s not 105 years old…that would be too good to be true. But Glenfarclas 105 does seem to stretch back into antiquity. The first commercially-available cask-strength single malt, the title refers to the proof, from the days when alcohol strength was measured on a scale based on how strong rum needed to be before it would ignite when mixed with gunpower…105 proof corresponds to 60% ABV (the uniform strength between batches betrays that it’s not strictly speaking ‘straight from the cask’ - this is likely produced from casks higher than 60% which are then blended together and diluted to that level). That’s quite strong - certainly one of the stronger cask strength whiskies out there. More alcohol corresponds to more flavour, if your liver can take it, and this is appropriately laden with raisins, coffee beans, liquorice, and the dry black fruits of an Australian shiraz. It should make you wince on swallowing as the alcohol sucks every drop of moisture out of your tongue - if nosing this doesn’t make your eyes water, you’re doing it wrong. It’s surprisingly creamy if you give it time to cool down (a drop or two of water doesn’t hurt), reminiscent of hazelnut creme praline. But in the background there is definitely something to take the edge off the sweetness - leather, shoe polish, diesel fumes, black pepper…or maybe it’s just alcohol. Be careful, enjoy responsibly, etc.

12yo

The twelve-year-old expression from Glenfarclas is perhaps the best example of their “Christmas cake in a glass” advertising tagline. It strikes the perfect balance between the honey sweetness of the 10-year-old, and the heavy oaken influence of the older bottlings: it is moist fruitcake with icing; demerara sugar on the nose, honey-coated banana chips, a sprig of mint. The palate is bursting with flavour, offering a touch of dryness to complement the toasty, rum-and-raisin nutty body…although the age statement says 12years, there is likely some older malt in this recipe to lend it the heftiness and oaky notes. The perfect complement to a medium-full cigar such as a Montecristo No.4.
