Have taken a liking to the Glenfarclas range so much so have collected from the 21 year old the 25 year old the 30 and 40 year old along with the 1985 and 1983 Family Cast range and they are all wonderful whisky very pleasant ones for the future.
This tasting evening was brilliant, even though I missed a bit due to technical gremlins at my end. Excellent range of whiskies spanning the James Eadie range, from a blended whisky to cask strength single cask expressions, with a couple from the small batch range in between. Lots of good interaction between the participants, notably Harrison, and Hugh Barron from JE made this an incredible opportunity to learn even more about Scotch single malt whisky. Thanks Whisky Online, these tastings are excellent value!
This is an intense and robust expression. Plenty of dried fruit on the nose, gentle peat and dark red fruit...like the colour. On the palate, more dried fruit and dark cherry, a rich nuttiness and subtle earthy smoke meaty note held together with a sweet rich sherry and spices. Wow, lovely whisky!!!
The Macallan quest collection was bought for investment purposes as the line has be discontinued, however the delivery time from order was outstanding and all bottles were well packed with no damage to bottles or boxes.
My son visited the distillery and liked the product.
