Glenfarclas Family Casks 1978 (Cask #4004), 41.3%

Price: $589 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The color is light gold, the nose is very sweet and delicate, with a floral aspect that's not always immediately apparent in Glenfarclas. This is from a fourth-fill hogshead, which provides creaminess, toffee, a little hint of orchid, burnt cream, and grilled peach. Sweetly delicious. The palate is akin to bread-and-butter pudding, with that creaminess continuing. All very summery and ‘up.' Quite different, but appealing.£350
