- Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Quarter Cask
Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Quarter Cask Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Limited release of the last remaining quarter casks at Glenfarclas distillery.
Quarter casks are so called as they contain a quarter of the volume of a traditional sherry butt. 900 bottle release.
Nose: sweet, fresh honeycomb, sherry prominent but not over powering. A very well balanced nose. No oak or age, a very youthful 25YO.
Taste: a dark bitter chocolate, light ginger, caramel and treacle pudding topped with vanilla custard. An ever changing taste bringing in all the quarter casks that were used to make this delightful whiskey.
Finish: long, fresh, with granny smith apples coming forth.
