AromaWater opens up the aromas, bringing out the fruity, estery character and developing an attractive freshness. This is balanced by a distinct scent of treacle, which suggests maturation in Sherry oak casks. The maturity of the constituent whiskies comes over in light wood shavings and cardboard notes.

FlavourThe mouth feel is smooth and viscous, full and rich. The primary taste is sweet, with a hint of smoke in the finish. The overall taste is sweet, with a hint of smoke in the finish. The overall taste recollects the toffee noted on the nose, indeed, the flavour is a good extension of what is promised by the nose. The finish is lengthy.

CommentBarclays is a first rate whisky, in blind tastings it would rate as a deluxe. It has a richness which can only be described as “old-fashioned” and which has been blended out of most premium-standard blends today. Although there is no statement of age there can be no doubt that very much older whiskies have gone into the mix.

Available in: 200 ml, 700 ml, 1000 ml
