Product Description

One of the original set of Family cask releases from the Glenfarclas range of rare and old single cask releases that go all the way back to whisky distilled in 1952 and first released in 2007.

Distilled 8/3/1968 Bottled 30/11/2006

Aged for 38 years in as ingle Sherry Butt cask #1316

Only 483 bottles released at natural cask strength 65.1% ABV

A dark amber-bronze colour.

Full bodied Glenfarclas, very deep and mature, complex fruit, sultanas and marmalade. A strong powerful Glenfarclas, i believe it is the strongest we have ever released at this age.

The aroams are intense with rich tones of honey, vanilla, liquorice, cinnamon, raisins and a hint of peat smoke.

This whisky has many layers to delve through. It is like a layered cake with fruit on top, honey, caramel and toffee in the middle, with dry oaky spiciness and a slightly smoky finish.
