Glenfarclas 40 Year Old

glenfarclas_40yo_130

Description

New 2010 release. Tremendous value distillery botlling of the sherry matured Speyside single malt. This 40yo is a truly amazing whisky, so fresh and vibrant for an old whisky.

Distillery: Glenfarcas

Founded 1836 and purchased by John Grant and his son George in 1865. Ace sherry casks underpin the ethos of Glenfarclas, having released its first cask strength single malt way back in 1968.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Reminiscent of relaxing in an old leather armchair while eating walnuts and chocolate covered raisins. Palate: A sweet initial taste, orange segments dipped in liquid chocolate. Then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar at the back of the mouth. The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans. Let the whisky breathe a little or add a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram.
