Glenfarclas Scotch Single Malt 1968 86@ 1968 750ml

Glenfarclas Scotch Single Malt 1968 86@

The Glenfarclas distillery is one of the last 'family' distilleries in Speyside. Glenfarclas was licensed in 1836 by farm tenant Robert Hay. For a while around 1850 Glenfarclas was also known under the name 'Glenlivet' - but we all know who won the battle for that name... Nowadays, only Glenlivet distillery can use that name.

Nose: Light with faint fruits and something vaguely coastal. Quite different from the 'Farclas profile. Citrussy. Opens up a little over time, but it's more sharpness rather than more complexity. Taste: Fairly smooth with the faintest hint of pine and perfume. Long dry finish on the edge of bitterness. This starts as the 'plywood' finish that I'm no fan of, but there are some brief fruity episodes too.
