Together with George Grant, this fantastic whisky was selected by the panel of visitors who came to an event at Glenfarclas - 'The Family Casks - help choose the 1996 bottling', held during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2011. The following tasting note was compiled by George and the 30 people who selected the cask.
Tangerine, polished bronze.
Roasted Chestnuts, deep sherry, Christmas cake flavours, toffee chocolate, light vanilla custard, old leather, the smell of a lovely cared for old book. Chocolate orange dried apricots. A cinnamon tanginess.
A wonderfully balanced whisky very rounded.
