Not quite the 21 or 25 year old. I have tasted the 21 at a whisky bar in Hong Kong a few years ago and recall not being overwhelmed by it. Twas certainly ok, but I was expecting something more special. I could not see the 25yo on eBay under teh current eBay Plus discount offer, but the 21yo come out at just under $120 on that deal.

Bought Glenfarclas 17 back in 2017 and don't really think much of it.
Even though all are discounted I have not pulled the trigger on any other Glenfarclas.

I thought there was Wild Turkey Master's Keep Decades at DanMurphy's@EBay this arvo. Now when I wanted to buy it's not there anymore.

Love Glenfarclas! Finally was privileged to visit the distillery last year.

The 25 is sometimes on sale through Nicks. I think the 21 yo to my palate is the best value for money.

But it is not a whisky! Is there an AFF rum thread?
Given the lack of interest on this thread until recently, perhaps this thread should include all spirits rather than just whisky? Better to have one active thread than five dead ones.

In general I found there are not many amazing deals for whisky in Australia, although you can take advantage of whiskylist to find the cheapest price, then price match with a merchant for free shipping.

Ordered another bottle of The Gospel, honestly do yourself a favour and give it a try, I’m going to make a big call and say one of Australia’s best.

Also looks hot on the bar cart unlike all the tacky overseas bottles!

I buy it direct but I know some people love their Coles and Woolies chain stores :)
