Rich sweet, malty almost like a chocoalte covered digestive. Some dried fruit present, sultanas and raisins.
1994 is a fantastic vintage for Glenfarclas. This dram although not as sweet on the palate as on the nose, has dry coffee bitterness, rich dark chocolate also very much present.
One of the longest finishies I have ever experienced in a whiskey. A truly moreish whiskey (you will have more!
