Glenfarclas 12yo 43%

70cl, 46% – Scotland

The distillery was first founded in 1836 by Robert Hay. However, there is some evidence that there was a distillery on the site over a century prior. Glenfarclas has always been, and it seems will remain to be, one of Scotland’s only family run distilleries. Accordingly, there is a strong degree of independence. Prized by connoisseurs, the single malt whiskies of Glenfarclas are matured almost solely in sherry butts and are aged in the substantial onsite warehousing facilities; the 28 warehouses hold 52,000 casks. Vibrant amber-gold colour. The nose is fresh and beautifully light, with sherried fruit combined with a tempting spicy sweetness and a hint of sappy oak. The palate is full-bodied with a light sherried fruit note, oak and delicious sweetness.
