A great whisky holding all the flavours of all the Olenfarclas in one glass. Being this wanning, it is the perfect Hogmanay dram. Don’t be afraid of the strength and order a 210 if you dare! The smoothness makes the 105 drinkable at cask strength, but add a little water to fully explore its great depth. For its price to performance ratio, the Malt Maniacs named Olenfarclas 105 their ‘Bang for your Buck’ in 2004.
Colour: Deep peaty-gold
Nose: Complex, oaky, apples and pears and a tempting dark toffee sweetness.
Flavour: Dry and assertive, develops quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint of oak and sherried fruit.
Finish: Amazingly smooth for the strength. WonderfullY wanning with a lingering smokiness, yet very rounded.
