An old 1965 vintage whisky from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This whisky has been matured for 38 years and bottled at cask strength in March 2004. The tag line for this bottle is "Almond syrup and rose petals", sounds delightful.
A very dark treacle in colour.
Light on the nose initially, with some walnuts dipped in chocolate coming through.
Similar to the previous 1965 this needs some time to open up in the glass. After forty four years in a cask this whisky needs some breathing space, a drop or two of water has the same effect. Distinct heather honey notes emanating after a couple of minutes.
An incredibly easy drinking whisky.
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).
A special bottling of Glenfarclas Single Malt Whisky. This bottle was produced to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Forties Oil Field start up in September 1975. This whisky has been matured for 20 years and was released in 1995 to coincide with the anniversary.
