"One for the road" The last bottling to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Douglas Laing, the specialist whisky blenders and bottlers. A series of single cask bottlings to celebrate each of the firms six decades.
For December 2009: 18 year old Glenfarclas (probably Speyside's finest) from a wine finished cask and presented in a special gold embossed wooden box. The bottle and packaging are simply stunning. 195 numbered bottles.
No tasting notes at present.
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.
