I originally gave this an A- mostly for the nose. This is the first time a malt smelled like fresh cinnamon rolls. And I love that smell. Add oranges to that. On a second tasting, oxidation seemed to bring it toward peanut butter. The palette seems a bit of a let down, not that it is bad, but the nose is so amazing. Tastes of sherry, a little apple and cheese, and still the orange flavors. Moderately long finish turns to mulled wine flavors. I have always found Glenfarclas is much better when it gets over 25 years. This is another good example.
Very woody all around, on the nose and palate, but it's not a bitter wood, dry in body but a little sugar in the finish makes it work... After a while more of a sherry profile emerged, figs and orange peel. Some old bourbon and pepper notes finish it off.
