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.
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.
A really incredible Glenfarclas - a forty-year old expression of cask-strength cult favourite 105, bottled late in 2008 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the appearance of the 105 expression. It's astonishing that they managed to maintain the 60% abv over forty years in sherry casks - this will be an epic dram.
A simply stunning refill sherried Glenfarclas at a phenomenal age. What is amazing about this whisky is that the oak is not too intrusive and while there is obviously a big fruitcake sherry character, it isn't overwhelming and the balance is still there. Probably one of the greatest malts ever released from this truly great distillery.
An old and well matured Glenfarclas released as part of the 10th edition of Family Casks, their prestigious single cask line. Distilled in 1959, matured for over 50 years in a sherry hogshead and bottled in 2012 at cask strength.
A beautiful set containing a bottle of Glenfarclas and 4 glasses. The set was commissioned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the distillery on Friday 23rd May 1986, with the casks personally selected by John Grant.
A stunning new distillery bottling of Glenfarclas 50yo for The Whisky Exchange. Aged over 50 years in a single refill sherry cask, and bottled at a remarkable 50% abv, just 87 bottles were yielded from the cask. This incredibly rare Glenfarclas has been packaged in a gorgeous crystal decanter.
