The Whisky Exchange ‘Glenfarclas Cask Selection Masterclass with George S. Grant’ – Scotch Whisky News


Glenfarclas Cask Selection Masterclass with George S. Grant 

For our February whisky tasting we are delighted to welcome Glenfarclas Brand Amabassador George Grant to The Whisky Exchange at Vinopolis to take us through some highlights from their incredible range of whiskies. The Grant family have owned the distillery since 1865 and George is the sixth generation to have been involved in the day to day running of the company. Glenfarclas are one of the very few remaining truly independent and family-owned distillers in Scotland. We’ve long been fans of the distillery and George hosted our inaugural whisky tasting back in August 2006. 

Glenfarclas are renowned for using ex-sherry casks during maturation, which produce a distinctive, rich and indulgent style of whisky. This was shown to be popular when TWE customers voted Glenfarclas 15yo as our ‘Whisky of the Year’ in December, and we have decided to select a vintage batch of Glenfarclas to be bottled exclusively for TWE. 

As part of the tasting George will be bringing us a number of samples to choose from and the decision of which to bottle will be made by those at the tasting. 

Exact details of the cask samples will be announced on the night, but we can reveal the rest of the line-up:

- Glenfarclas 15yo (TWE ‘Whisky of the Year 2013′)

- Glenfarclas 21yo

- Glenfarclas 25yo Quarter Cask

- Glenfarclas 40yo

- Glenfarclas 1979 Family Cask X #8791 

An incredible line-up and a fantastic opportunity to help us choose a whisky – one not to miss. 

The tasting will take place on Monday 10th February, 7:30pm.
