N: Deep wood, figgy, nutty, burnt sherry.
P: Interesting sherry, on the burnt toffee side
F: Flan.
Quite good but not on par with expectations for this price range.

Strong, carmelly cooked sherry but overly oaky at first.  Great long finish.  B+

 

retaste: summer 2011

 

n: Plums.  Nice

 

p:  Gunpowder and rotten fruit.  Uncooked sherry.

 

B+ thanks to nose

Hello sherry, but it's not obnoxiously in your face. Plummy and grapey and really delicious. The ABV keeps this very drinkable and, uh, well, I want more-able. Interestingly, the 1974 was a sort of "follow up" to the 1968, but I like the 1974 significantly more, due in no small part to it being cask strength and this being 43%.

A pretty straightforward sherried Glenfarclas with some malty notes behind the sherry on the palate.  A bit flat and could use higher proof but a nice overall malt.
