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.

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
