Glenfarclas 30 Yrs – 2 May 2014

Produced at: Glenfarclas Distillery (Speyside)
Description: Established in 1836, Glenfarclas is one of the very few remaining independent, family owned and managed distilleries in Scotland. The story of Glenfarclas is as rich and colourful as the whisky that bears its name. It is the story of one family, the Grants, who since purchasing the distillery in 1865, have been united in the creation of the perfect Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky. Glenfarclas, the `Glen of the Green Grassland’, is situated at the foot of the majestic Ben Rinnes, in the heart of Speyside’s Malt Whisky Country. By using the finest ingredients, combined with traditional distillation methods, the unforgettable flavour of Glenfarclas is created. Rigorous quality controls ensure each and every batch is as special as the last. Specially selected Spanish sherry casks and American plain oak casks are used for maturation, enabling Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whiskies to be bottled at natural colour. The ages bottled include the 10, 12, 15, 21, 25, 30 years old, and the distinctive 105 Cask Strength at 60% alc/vol. Glenfarclas Single Malts are full bodied, smooth, full of flavour, and superb as after-dinner malts. Continue reading
