- Glenfarclas 1971 Family Casks Release VII
Single cask sherry butt #150. Distilled 1971 and bottled May 2011 yielding 468 bottles.
One of the famous vintage casks from the Glenfarcas Family Casks series running consecutively covering the years from 1952 to 1996.
Powerful, treacle toffee, fudge. Like a freshly made pan of tablet and licking thick vanilla goo off a metal spoon.
Very fresh, a lot less sweet on the palate than you were experiencing on the nose. Grassy earthy notes also pushing their way through.
Medium finish Glenfarclas, lovely taste of fresh cut grass.
Glenfarclas Single Malt Whiskey
Glenfarclas Distillery was established in Speyside in 1836 by Robert Hay and following his death it was bought by John Grant in 1865 and 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 single malt whiskey, exemplified in the Family Cask range, and way back in 1968 released its first cask strength single malt. The range includes Glenfarclas 15 Year Old, Glenfarclas 105 and Glenfarclas 21 Year Old alongside the Family Casks series.
