Glenfarclas

Postby Jenny » Wed Jan 22, 2003 1:48 am

Hej,

I have ordered a bottle of Glenfarclas 21 years old and I wonder if that was the "best" deal I could make?

Any comments?

That's a bit hard to comment on without knowing how much you paid for it!?

I have not tried the 21, but the 15 is marvellous. In terms of price, the 21 is about € 70, the 25 year old is € 99. Compared to other whiskies these are very competitive prices (most 25 year olds here in Sweden cost € 130-150) and Glenfarclas is a quality malt.

21yo is good, although I could sense some differencies with 25yo but I can't describe exactly what is the difference. Nose is excellent in both and in both it promises a lot more to taste than can be found. Taste is easy, very enjoyable, somewhat complex but surprisingly short. I feel that 25yo might be bit sweeter/more sherry in taste and I think it's bit better, but this sounds ridiculous when thinking about 21 years and 25 years. Image

I must try the younger ones someday ...

Woo, that's cheap. From where? I assumed you ordered it from the by-me-much-hated-but-often-visited Systembolaget. Image

Of course not, otherwise it wouldn't be that cheap Image

Systembolaget's price is 695.00 kr, that's about €77...

I ordered it at a german internet shop (http://www.whisky-versandhandel.de).
Luckily I speak german... Image
