The Glenfarclas 105 40th Anniversary. Photo ©2013 by Mark Gillespie.This 40-year-old version of Glenfarclas 105 was bottled to mark the 40th anniversary of the original bottling in 1968. The ruby-red color leads to a peppery nose with figs, toffee, Christmas Cake, and a hint of honey. The taste is fruity and intensely spicy with a good burn and notes of dried figs, sherry, toffee, cinnamon, and ginger. The finish is long with cinnamon and pepper notes that fade slowly. Adding a few drops of water brings out notes of orange and mango on the palate. An amazing whisky!  (April, 2013)
