About this deal

To me it’s not a great whisky, or a 6 in the scores. But hey we’ll all never agree on what scores actually mean! Hopefully the tasting notes were relatable at least and I’m glad the 105 is one you really like. So you could say the 105 in made up of whiskies with a minimum age of eight years. Older whiskies that go into the vatting are used not only for flavour but as a way of reducing the bottling strength to 60%. K&L Glenfarclas “Assertive, amazingly smooth for the strength, and wonderfully warming.”– Glenfarclas Glenfarclas 105 Tasting Notes

Nose: Intense, powerful sherry. Cream sherry, certainly – Pedro Ximenez? almost… a touch of peppermint? An almost rancio quality to this. Smells older than 15. Tasted this sherry monster again and had a chance to really revisit it. It’s been a while since I first tasted Glenfarclas 105 and I’ve learned to drink cask strength versions since then. Drinkers and enthusiasts rant and rave about the “Top 10 Best Sherry Bombs” or claim the best whisky in the world can be categorised as a “Sherry Bomb.” But what is a Sherry Bomb? Well I’ve seen them described as “whiskies that are matured either exclusively or for the majority of their maturation period in sherry casks (most often mostly first-fill).” An additional caveat would be that some are cask strength, but this is not always the case.From the first nosing until the long lingering aftertaste, each of the notes will present then withdraw, in evolving combinations. A dash of this whisky can be great in baking, compote, and desserts. Its sweetness and strength work well there.
