Dram Review: Glenfarclas Springs

[46.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2014・Official Bottling・Limited Release of 6000 Bottles]


Lime twists and toasted almonds.  Honey glazed leg ham and stone fruits.  The nose conveys a typical refill Sherry influence and is not overly complex at all.

Palate & Finish:

In contrast to the lighter notes on the nose, the delivery oozes of caramel.  Molten white chocolate with plenty of barley sugar and a splash of spices and minerals as the raisin sweetness is laid out.

The finishing is simple and non-challenging, with a hint of vanilla sugar.


It’s important for me to bear in mind that this series is really aimed at introducing Glenfarclas to the German market at an affordable rate.  The Springs is a much sweeter iteration on the palate of the three, a reflection of consumer preference perhaps.
