Glenfarclas Distillery was first licensed in 1836, and this limited edition bottling has been produced to celebrate the 175th Anniversary. In addition to the oldest cask from 1952, Glenfarclas have included three casks from each of the following five decades to produce this exceptional bottling of Glenfarclas. Amber heather honey in colour, with toffee and vanilla aromas which become more pronounced the longer the whisky rests in your glass. The taste marries the heavy sherry from the 1950s and 1960s with the light fruitiness of the 1970s and 1980s, the freshness of the 1990s and the surprising maturity of the youngest casks from 2000. John L S Grant, Glenfarclas Chairman, says: "With six different decades in one glass I hope you enjoy this unique Glenfarclas.
Nose: The old ones have the lead here, very clearly. Theres this faint smokiness that some old Glenfarclas had and then a rather perfect combination of waxy/honeyed notes with several dried fruits such as orange zests, figs and our little kumquats.
Palate: Excellent and in the style of some older Glenfarclas from the Grant Bonding era. Some cinnamon, orange marmalade, dark chocolate and then touches of orange blossom water.
Finish: Not very long but clean
