Glenfarclas 10

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)
Occasions, Tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
Did not make it on the top spot because it does not have the long smooth finish and also the flavor does not pack a punch. It is an easy-to-drink everyday scotch. 
Occasion- Friends get together
SJ's Pro tip- It is a budget-friendly scotch
Alternates- Glenfarclas 12 , similar price higher ABV 
Food Pairing- Pork nachos, spicy grilled duck

The Second Segment(Technical details that are mostly available on google search)
I have already covered Glenfarclas Distillery in my previous blog. 
The product description in it's website states "100% Olorosso Sherry Cask maturation. 
Gloriously smooth yet with the depth and finish you would normally expect of a much older dram". 
I disagree on the part where it says smooth and good finish. This is where it lags behind to be on the top spot.
