Glenfarclas 21 year old, 43%

Price: $130 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

If you expect all Glenfarclas to be heavy, first-fill sherry bombs, think again. This has honey, pear, light vanilla, cinnamon bark, toffee, grilled apricot, and a squirt of peel oils. It's lithe and expressive, with creamy orange fondant and grapefruit, then spicy licorice, peppermint, and finally, banana chews and toffee. A spirited burst of spices on the finish, with a further drenching of citrus flavors.
