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 1/6/1956 Bottled 27/2/2007

Aged for 50 years in a single Sherry Butt cask#1758

Only 435 bottles released at natural cask strength 47.3% ABV

An incredibly dark whisky, very rich in texture.

Initially, the nose is delicate-not what you would expect after seeing  the colour. Once a little air has interacted, strong sherry aromas emerge, bringing forth a waterfall of scents varying from lychees to papaya.

As you would expect from a whisky of this calibre and age, the presence of the oak is strong. Adding a little water takes the edge away from the tannins, revealing flavours of brandy and armagnac.

A powerful whisky. Although less than 50% Vol, it tastes much stronger and this is evident on the finish.
