A really beautiful old 1970s bottling of cask-strength Glenfarclas, one of the earliest examples we've seen of the distillery's pioneering 105-proof expression. Originally an 8yo, the 105's age statement was dropped sometime around the late 1980s or early 1990s to keep up with demand.
An 8 year old 1970s bottling of Glenfarclas. It was an interesting decade at the distillery, with the floor maltings ceasing to be used in 1972, the visitors centre opening in 1973 and the distillery being enlarged in 1976. As with many of the best Glenfarclas bottlings, this is at cask strength.
An old bottling of Glenfarclas 8 Year Old. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1960s and, judging by the colour, has spent some time in sherried casks. The bottle is wrapped with its original 'tartan jacket'.
A 1963 vintage entry in Glenfarclas's Family Casks range, part of the 10th release of single cask bottlings. Bottled in 2012 it's a rich old traditional whisky from the distillery, packed full of sherry fruit.
