1966- 4192 Sherry Butt_E

 

  

A deeply hued whisky, this was distilled in 1966 and matured in a single sherry butt before release as part of the Glenfarclas Family Cask Collection. This amazing whisky has a taste that is rather complicated; with a hint of the sweetness of toffee caramel, full of single malt fragrance and sherry old cask. All in all, it’s a beautiful full-bodied whisky with all the flavors which makes you want to close your eyes, relax and enjoy the momentum. Metaphorically speaking, it is like imagining yourself standing in the middle of a quiet water vapor dense forest early in the morning and having the gentle breeze touch upon your heart.

To use one simple paragraph to describe Glenfarclas 1966, the aftertaste is a reminiscent of “a group of deer sprinting across the grass field”. As the whisky enters your mouth, she rapidly rushes down from the tip of your tongue to the throat with a slight spiciness on the palate. The indescribable feeling is equivalent to a deer hoof that continuously stomps on the taste buds, extending all the way to the base of the tongue at a lightning speed. The mouthwatering whisky brings up the image of a group of deer running across the wilderness in a fast pace, this is the moment that inspires and moves me the most!

This whisky has a unique rich flavor of malt and with a hint of sweetness. She is very warm with a little tannin coming through on the aftertaste. As the wine flows down, you can feel a strong retraction in between the nasal cavity and the root of the tongue- indescribable! Certainly beyond my imagination and absolutely shocking- truly a group of wild deer dashing through the field!

A flawless piece of art- this product is incredibly unique. Following the retraction in between the nasal cavity and the tongue, the flavor slowly disperses and fades away. Just like the cloud of dust that gradually disappears after the deer bolts across the field, grand but not cluttered. The finish is long and toasty- a signature ending style of Glenfarclas whisky.

格蘭花格1966年是很有趣的一支酒,她擁有一股很豐富又複雜的香氣,滿滿的麥香和著帶點潮濕的木桶香,還有藏在底層的隱隱焦糖味,三者時而盛大時而低伏,會讓你不自覺的想要靜靜聞著。仿若清晨,站在水氣氤氳的森林中,很沁入心脾的靜謐。

若要用一句話來形容格蘭花格1966年份,我會說她就像是在草原上奔跑的鹿群。一入口她很迅速的從舌尖往前奔跑,微點帶刺的酒精感,就像是鹿蹄一樣不斷不停的在味蕾上綻放,一路延伸到舌根深處,迅雷不及掩耳的速度,讓唾液也慌了手腳,一切就是鹿群奔過時的憾動與感動。

此品的麥香味很濃郁,還會帶著韻底的甜味,順著酒體在中段時不斷在鼻腔與舌後根處不停的收放,這真的很難讓人可以平心靜氣啊,太震憾了,想然是味蕾無法駕馭的味道,真是奔過曠野的鹿群啊。

此品尾韻很獨特,承接了中段在鼻腔處的收放感,慢慢的往四週散去。的確就像鹿群狂奔過後的塵煙,盛大但不雜亂,緩緩慢慢的消散,這真是花格特有的收尾風格獨具韻味十足。
