Nose: Sweet candied fruit with hints of sherry.

Palate: Flavours of butterscotch are offset by baking spice with predominant clove aromatics all underpinned by the nutty cocoa of sherry.

Finish: Sherry malty notes in the long finish. Surprising amount of heat in the finish beginning in the mid-palate for such a mature scotch.

Overall: I am somewhat disappointed with this offering from Glenfarclas. I purchased this bottle on my way home from London as I was impressed with the 10yr expression I tried months earlier. Although I enjoy the complexity of Glenfarclas, in general, the 17yr doesn't finish as mellow as I was hoping. However, the resonant heat in the finish would make this whisky a good warm-up after shovelling the driveway in winter.
