Glenfarclas 50 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - 2019.
Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt has released a much anticipated 50 Year Old.
Only 146 bottles are available to the UK market.
This single malt is a truly magnificent release from arguably one of the best Speyside distilleries, combined with the best malted barley, twice distilled in a traditional, direct fired, copper pot still and filled into the finest Spanish Sherry oak casks in which to lie maturing over 50 years in their famously cool dunnage warehouses.
Bottled at the natural cask strength of 40.6% ABV and natural colour, this Single Malt is a rare taste of history.
Befitting of a whisky of such rarity, the Single Malt has been bottled in a crystal decanter created by Glencairn Crystal, hand decorated in copper with a heavy copper stopper.
The decanter sits within a red mahogany piano-finished gift box, reflecting the autumnal hues of Speyside.
Colour: Dark Amber
Nose: Fresh sweet sherry which is both youthful and complex at the same time. In the glass, it develops aromas of Scottish fudge and butterscotch.
Flavour: Lots of spice along with Oloroso soaked raisins and rich dark chocolate.
Finish: Perfect combination of sherry, spice and alcohol which results in an extremely long, beautiful finish. A wonderful example of Glenfarclas at 50 years old.
Glenfarclas has been in the hands of the Grant family since 1865, having opened in 1836,now under the direction of 5th and 6th generations, John and George Grant.
