- Glenfarclas 1964 Family Casks Release VII
Glenfarclas 1964 Family Casks Release VII Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Single sherry butt cask #4719 nottled 2011, limited to 377 bottles.
Cola Cubes, sweet and dry on the nose, an interesting combination. Light tannins, more from Burgundy wine than a big Bordeaux. Almost like a polished segment of sandalwood, a very fragrant whiskey.
Smooth and very palatable, leaves you wanting more. Not as dry on the palate as it is on the nose.
Long, delicate, lightly leathery, a very typical Glenfarclas
