Member Ratings and Notes
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


Retaste 9/7/15


p: Firstly WFT is uncooked sherry?  What was I thinking during the last notes.  Probably bad handwriting.


There is definitely old wood here.  Not quite stale but notable. The sherry is less sweet than in the 74.  Thinned prune juice.

Still enjoyable.  Still B+ 


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.
