Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. With greater complexity than younger Glenfarcas whiskies, this is a great whiskey drinker’s whiskey.
Awarded 95/100 in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
Complex, sherried, deliciously peated, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit. The flavour is full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours. Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky, and distinguished finnish.
Glenfarclas Distillery was established by Robert Hay in Speyside in 1836. John Grant purchased Glenfarclas in 1865 and it has remained in the ownership of the Grant family ever since. The interior of the visitor centre is stunning, the walls are lined with the original oak panels salvaged from a lounge on the liner SS Empress of Australia when she was scrapped 1952. Ace sherry casks underpin the ethos of Glenfarclas malt whisky, having released its first cask strength single malt way back in 1968 and in 1973 became the third to open a distillery visitor centre. Glenfarclas Distillery participates in the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.
