Product Description

A delightful decanter containing 1953 vintage Glenfarclas. This bottling was released in 2013 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

A limited release of only 60 specially commissioned crystal decanters. The whisky matured in a single oak cask in Glenfarclas's cellars in Ballindalloch for almost six full decades before being bottled at its natural strength. Only air, wood and time have influenced the development of its magnificent flavour profile.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      At first concentrated dark fruit, macadamia nuts and orange liqueur. Baked apples and raisins develop in the glass for a more subtle style of whisky, while shiitake mushrooms, autumn leaves and sandalwood add a wonderful savoury aspect. Spiced cake and dried fruit provide a balancing sweetness.

    • Palate

      An initial launch into clove studded oranges and mulled wine, with fragrant arabica coffee, dark chocolate and umami. The flavours then lighten and lead towards an explosion of fruit - ripe mango and guava are balanced by grapefruit and juicy mandarin. Behind this, gentle honey sweetness and barley sugar combine with ground nutmeg and cinnamon to give a complex and rounded body. Given time, tarragon and cedar wood compliment leafy mint and cooked blackberries.

    • Finish

      Soft orchard fruit and bread pudding linger on the palate, with touches of hazelnut, fresh mint and citrus juice leaving you ready for another sip.
