Made at Glenfarclas distillery and matured in oloroso sherry casks for a quarter of a century before being bottled to celebrate The Whisky Exchange's 20th Anniversary. Aromas of meadow flowers, baked apples, barley sugar and buttery brioche fill the nose, developing into earthy coffee and sweet raisins. The palate opens with notes of fruit cake, salted caramel and rich oak, developing buttery pastry, raisins and fruity espresso flavours and dry waxiness.
This bottle features a specially-created label, designed by our creative director Raj Chavda to pay tribute to London's vibrant hospitality industry.Tasting Notes (1)
- Fruit Cake
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Meadow flowers and barley sugar sit on top of a pile of sultanas and baked apples. Fragrant wax-polished oak follows, with freshly scraped vanilla pods and a touch of pine sap. Buttered brioche and fruit loaf notes develop along with mixed peel and a hint of cream. Hiding underneath is a bed of Eccles-cake raisins and earthy ground coffee.
Rich and oily, with well-fruited sponge cake leading to salted caramel and old oak tables. Singed, buttered toasted and buttery pastry are wrapped around fruity espresso and raisins. Dried apple rings liberally spread with blackcurrant jam and sprinkled with brown sugar sit in the middle. Behind everything is an elegant waxiness and freshly polished pine boards.
Lingering sweet spice, light char, sultanas and a touch of hay and honeysuckle.
An elegant Glenfarclas. The sherry punch of the regular 25 year old is dialled back to reveal orchard fruit as well as a layer of rich dried vine fruit and peel. Espresso notes run through the middle, making sure things don't get too sweet and reminding us that this came from an oloroso cask.

Wow! I've tasted a number of 25 year olds over the years including other Glenfarclas and for the money this is an absolute bargain. Please do not miss out on purchasing this superb dram, seen a number of reviews rating around 90/100, personally I'm nearer the 95 mark.
Smooth, rich, and sweet on the finish. Honestly, it confused me at first, then I added and ice cube and the water opened it up as it melted. If you're looking for smoke, this isn't it, but if you want something that's good for relaxing after dinner, you won't be disappointed at all in this bottle.
