Glenfarclas – 1966 Feral Clangs

Rating: 80-100 out of 10

Nose: Had I tried this blind, I would have guessed it was Glenfarclas. Smells like old whisky, in that there’s quite a lot of ‘sour’ notes. Lime-juice, fruit flavoured yoghurt drink. Clearly bourbon-matured: vanilla, honeysuckle,
Mouth: nice and surprisingly gentle, even if it has quite some tannins. More of the same, but with some more spices.
Finish: quite drying, but nice and long. There’s a strange kind of earthyness to it, of which I’m not sure yet whether I like it or not. It is interesting though.
