Glenfarclas are perhaps best known for their heavily sherried bottlings. This time, however, we have been graced with something quite special... a 43 year old Glenfarclas matured in Cognac casks. As far as we know, there have been only a small handful of whiskies matured in Cognac casks (and from what we have been hearing, this one is absolutely gorgeous).
After 2007's 'new' Black Bowmore, this White Bowmore is the second edition of the Noughties' 1964 Trilogy series, and has spent its life in bourbon casks, so should make for a very interesting contrast. Awarded 94 points from John Hansell in Malt Advocate, this was one of the most talked-about releases of 2008.
