Lot number: 069-1511

Still in family hands since it was founded, the Glenfarclas Distillery is one of Speyside's independent whisky producers. The Grant family have been running Glenfarclas since 1860, producing an individual Speyside malt that many whisky enthusiasts number as one of their favourites. The water source is melt water from the slopes of Ben Rinnes which runs through granite and heather before reaching Glenfarclas (meaning 'the valley of green grass'). With a long history of bottlings stretching back to the early 20th Century, both proprietary and independent.

This is something very special. Glenfarclas are famous for their heavily sherried whiskies. But this is an entire different take on maturation. Not sherry nor Bourbon. 43 years in cognac cask.

Age: 43 years old

Cask Type: Cognac casks

40.7% ABV / 70cl
