Whisky Advent Calendar Day 24: Glenfarclas 40 Year Old

Hint on the window: Creamy malt

Creamy indeed! I knew the calendar was saving something special for the final day, the last hurrah. And I was not disappointed when I opened up Day 24 and discovered a 40 year old Glenfarclas. 

This 40 year old comes with a bright, balanced, rich nose with a whiff of chocolate. The body is well integrated and smooth, the wood tannins are delightful. Finally, as all good things must come to and end the finish is deep, woody and long.  

This is a welcome new addition to the Glenfarclas family of whiskies. It offers all of the sherried Glenfarclas character and exceptional maturity, having been distilled way back in the 1960s.
