I love this whisky. I bought a 12 year old & found it was smooth & mellow with sherry tones, so I decided I must try a 15 year old & I was not disappointed as this was even better.
If you like whiskies like Macallan, which are matured in sherry casks, then this is definitely recommended.

This bottling lives up to its reputation. This is no ordinary official bottling. Many official bottlings these days can be 46% and unfiltered and yet just lack body and flavor. This is not the case here. The nose is full of vanilla, bubblegum and cereal notes. The is definite sherry going but it is not as dominate and heavy as you might expect. Glenfarclas as has a good reputation and this is still a lot better than I expected. £40 plus might seem a bit much considering indie bottlings some other distilleries are can often not cost that much more for cask strength single cask bottlings but there is seriously quality here. For a distillery with a reputation for sherried whisky this is better than any official Macallan I've ever had (and I respect Macallan in all its forms expecting the fine oak range)

Without question, this is my favourite whisky. I have had three bottles and the quality is consistently high. It's Christmas pudding in a bottle, but it's not overpoweringly sherried. I can't think how anyone wouldn't love this.
