Glenfarclas was purchased by John Grant on June 8 1865 for £511.19s.0d and Family Reserve has been launched to celebrate the 150th anniversary. A classic example of the distillery's style, this has been aged predominantly in first-fill sherry butts, and is rich, with notes of fruit, nuts and milk chocolate.Tasting Notes (2)
- Milk Chocolate
Tasting notes by Billy A
Honey and raisins with gentle charred-cask bitterness hidden behind. Stewed apples and pears develop in the glass, along with golden sugar, Portugese custard tarts, buttered fruit cake, nutmeg and clove. Despite those heavier notes, it’s still quite fresh, with freshly sliced Golden Delicious apple and hints of candied lemon.
Soft and rounded, with delicate sherry-cask spice and fruit to start. The flavours get darker as it develops, moving on through raisins and dark fruit cake to gentle notes of char and mixed spice. Just before the death, fresh apple pops up, accompanied by damp leaves and forest floor earthiness.
Nutmeg and cinnamon toast, soft and lingering with tart apple sauce and a hint of liquorice.
A game of two halves, with fresh fruit and weighty sherry-matured flavours balanced carefully, with each taking their turn on the nose and palate.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Sweet and rich sherry, like a toffee syrup over a freshly toasted French baguette, the nose promises fresh fruit smothered in heather honey, ending almost like a sweet port.
Then a dry yet sweet taste, a lovely balance of fruit, light nuttiness and milk chocolate develop, followed by a very palatable long and easy finish.

Lived up to it's name A fantastic whisky
Quite delicious. Honeyed and fruity, I can rarely pick out all the flavors that some can but this is a gem, beautiful aftertastes of sherry and oak with a long lingering finish of orange zest and spices. You must try it.
