Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The second release of 1952 vintage whisky as part of the Glenfarclas Family Cask range. This was the oldest whisky that they have in their warehouse (hopefully they have a few more casks) and was matured in a plain cask rather than their more usual sherry.

Tasting Notes:
Producer's Notes by George Grant

Pale, almost Sauternes in colour. Its also like a Sauternes in viscosity - a thick, heavy whisky.

With this, our second selection from 1952, we now have even fewer casks. So the rarity factor really comes into play, hence only 55 bottles available.

Smoky on the nose, I think the guys in the malt barns may have let the peat burn a little long on this batch. Still floral notes (almost like vanilla) or like the oak wood chips normally used on my barbecue.

Tannins are apparent immediately on the tast buds, but not as overpowering as you might expect from such an old whisky. A couple of drops of water release more flavours of peat and burnt malty sweetness.

The finish is long and lingering. You can still taste the whisky in your mouth long after the glass is empty.
Bottled 2007.
