Glenfarclas 15 vs 17

Postby xcel » Sun Apr 08, 2007 11:35 am

I'm wanting to try a bottle of glenfarclas and I wanted to see which you would go with. The 21 yo is only $10 more then the 17yo, so money shouldn't be involved in the decision. I know age doesn't always make the better whisky.

Let me know what you guys think

Sorry, screwed up on the poll. I meant to compare the 17 and the 21 yo.

Just think of the 15 option as 21

That'll get you into big trouble in most states.

I believe you can edit the poll if you want.

I've had both and I prefer the 17yo, but I would like to try the 15yo. I hear good things about it. Is the 17yo the U.S. version of the 15yo? I'm more interested in that comparison.

I have never had the 17yo - but but like the 21yo well enough.

Actually I prefer the 15yo to the 21yo - it is somehow more interesting - perhaps due to the higher content of ex-sherry casks.

I suggest that you start another poll with the 17 & 21. I know we have a sizeable international population on this board, but we also have many Americans. As an American, I know that Americans have lots of trouble following directions. Now, if the directions have changed, well than just forget it. :D

I voted for Ardbeg. (That is to say, ScotchPalate is absolutely right.)

I prefer the 15yo over both the 17 and the 21. It has more oloroso/fruit character. The two older drams are silky smooth, wonderfully rich and liqueur-like, but they don't quite have the same boldness of flavour that the 15yo offers.

Cheers,

I prefer both the 15 and the 21 to the 17... and will admit that most of my experience has been with the 15 (more sherry - rich and viscous) - but I recall hearing that the 17 was "designed" for export to the Asian market - and had a unique flavour profile (sweeter, perhaps)... I may need to sample it again (and again) to be sure...

I've said it before - I've never met a "Farcli" I didn't like... :wink:

The esthetic merits of Bruichladdich tins.

Right. Forty Creek is the perfect Canadian Whiskey for summertime.
