25 Year OldPlease wait Please wait
A beautiful whisky and a true classic. Twenty-five years in oloroso casks gives this Glenfarclas all the qualities people love about sherried Speyside whisky. Rich and silky, its defining note is hazelnut-strewn fruit cake, combined with dark chocolate and coffee. An excellent winter dram and this is, dare we say it, the perfect time to stock up for Christmas.

From the producer
- Colour: Amber with dark gold highlights.
- Nose: Complex yet refined, with tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins.
- Palate: Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither are overpowering.
- Finish: Intense, long lasting, dry and malty. A beautiful dark-chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the 25 years old.
The Glenfarclas distillery, founded in 1836, has been owned and managed by the same family since John Grant purchased it for £512 in 1865. Although John (II) and George (IV) – fifth- and sixth-generation Grants respectively – are now in charge, Glenfarclas continues to produce sherry-aged Speyside single malts in a traditional style.
