Just an amazing Single Malt. Worth every penny!
I've had numerous whisky's in my life but this one was amazing partly because of its independence. The taste was like no other, the depth and body was unexpected. i recommend this bottle to anyone that's looking to a fresh new taste in whisky, its not smoky like Ardbeg or Lagavulin or Laphroig, its smooth and full of amazing little flavors. i paired it to a glenlivet 21yo i had that day at the house and for me it took the race of flavors when compared to the glenlivet 21yo.
Colour: Amber with dark gold highlights.Nose: Complex, yet refined, delicately peated, with fresh tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins.Flavour: Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither is overpowering. A powerful nutty smokiness.Finish: Intense, long lasting, dry smoky and malty. A beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the flavour of the 25 Years Old.
The distinctive character of Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, for which only three essential ingredients are required; pure spring water, malted barley and yeast, is due to the Grant family’s commitment to traditional distillation methods, combined with the unique size and shape of the Glenfarclas copper pot stills, the specially selected oak casks, and the style and location of the warehouses.
In charge of production is Shane Fraser, our Distillery Manager. Originally from Royal Deeside, Shane has seventeen years experience in all aspects of distilling, having previously worked at distilleries on Deeside and the West Coast. One of Shane’s more important tasks is to monitor the progress of the casks as they mature in the dunnage warehouses, to identify which casks to select for the different expressions of Glenfarclas. Shane first visited Glenfarclas shortly after leaving school, impressed by the visit it was a dream come true when he was appointed Distillery Manager in January 2007.
