A single malt so classy that someone once said theyÂ swore it must've been distilled from swan's blood.
While we can't find the original quote to attribute that sentiment to someone (if you know - please get in touch), we agree with it. It's not the huge sherry bomb of the 17 or 21-year-olds, nor the older expressions but is rich and elegent.
This stillÂ has a large sherry influence, with nutty, chocolate and sublte smoke elements, but it's the smoothestÂ of the range in our opinion.
The Glenfarclas distillery is located in the Speyside region, within the Scottish highlands. Founded in the 1830s, it was purchased by John Grant in 1865. The sixth and fifth generations of the Grant family still run the distillery today and it is often regarded as one of the top two examples of independently-owned distilleries which have survived from the Victorian era (Springbank being the other).
Glenfarclas produce a heavy spirit thatÂ works best maturation in ex-sherry oak casks. Their traditional dunnage warehouses keep a constant temperature and so their whiskies are uniquely geared towards long, slow maturations.Â
