The story of Glenfarclas Distillery, established 1836, is as rich and colourful as the history of Highland Malt itself. It is the story of one Scottish family, the Grants, who since 1865 have been united by a single vision, the creation of the perfect Malt Whisky, the ultimate taste of Scotland. To this day, Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky is distilled and matured at the family owned and run distillery, which remains uniquely independent. In the words of a great rival Distiller in 1912 of all the Whiskies, Malt is king, of all the Malts, Glenfarclas reigns supreme..
Glenfarclas are renowned for producing Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky in the traditional Speyside style, with a heavy sherry influence. One of the delights of Glenfarclas is exploring the subtle differences between the different expressions. Now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation, the Grants remain committed to the vision of creating the finest quality Single Highland Malt Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style.
Straw gold colour. Florals, grainy, peaty nose, some light vanilla and burnt demerara sugar. Delicately light, sweet and Malty palate, then just when you think it's all gone a lovely burst of caramel toffee. A great dram to stare into and see the dark ripples of age drifting through the glass, a long slightly spicy finish.
