The judges tasting notes read;

Glenfarclas 12 Years Old - Gold and Best in Class
Nose billows with honey, malt, crushed apples and pineapple. Little floral flash in the background. Warm and sensual, slow flow across the palate revealing all the flavours the nose promised with more complexity coming from sherry flavours, sweet spice and some gentle oak. Fairly full bodied yet soft and smooth with beautiful harmony. Long, sustained, spice filled finish.

Glenfarclas 21 Years Old - Gold and Best in Class
Bright gold. Majestic, mature nose filled with honeyed malt, a teasing of dried fruit, some roasted nut notes and hints of truffle. Attractive floral backing. Lots of sherry in evidence. Rich and full in the mouth where sultanas and barley add to all the nose promised. Hints of coffee and vanilla and just a touch of coconut. Great texture and superb balance. Everlasting finish where the sherry and spice characters are very evident. Mellow, mature and comforting. Fabulous malt.

Glenfarclas 25 Years Old - Gold and Best in Class
Maturity underlines the nose with ginger, barley sugar, toffee and a sweet shop full of exciting aromatics. The palate has deep flavours along the lines of the nose with the same mature magnificance and introduces a decidedly fine layer of malt. Good oak and lots more spice. Hints of fruit cake, dark chocolate and more vanilla. A Speyside special.

Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength - Silver and Best in Class
Rich, aromatic nose with loads of malt, some nutty notes and lots of spice. Then a wave of fruit with crushed apples, pear and melon. Fine oak. All repeats in pretty lively mouth where hints of stewed prunes and vanilla make an impression. Youthful, lively finish.

The International Wine and Spirit Competition was founded in 1969. Its aim is to promote the quality and excellence of the world's best wines, spirits and liqueurs. This standard is achieved through a rigorous two-stage judging process of professional blind tasting and detailed technical analysis that takes place at The Competition's headquarters in England.
