An 8 year old bottling of Glenfarclas, which we estimate was bottled in 1973 or 1974. This was just after the number of stills at the distillery had been increased from four to six. This was bottled for the Italian market.

A remarkably well-priced 40yo from Glenfarclas range; simply-packaged just like the distillery's standard bottlings, and bottled at a perfect drinking strength of 46%. A 40yo sherried Speyside designed for drinking rather than sitting on a mantlepiece or in a display cabinet - bravo. Awarded a very well-merited Gold Medal at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2010.
An old presentation of Glenfarclas 21 year old whisky. Presented in a beautiful square bottle with grooves in either side for easy gripping. We estimate that this was bottled sometime in the late 1970s.
