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.

Glenfarclas 43 Year Old Cognac Cask

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 but cognac.

Cask Type: Cognac casks

40.7%ABV / 70cl

Glenfarclas 31 Year Old Port Cask

Age: 31 Year Old

Cask: Port Casks

42.8% ABV / 70cl

Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Quarter Cask

This is rather an unusual whisky in that it's spent all 25 years of its life in quarter casks. These special small casks are usually reserved for finishing a whisky as the high wood to whisky ratio gives the effect of a more mature whisky. But here Glenfarclas have combined 10 of their last old aged casks and this bottle is the result.

Age: 25 years old

Cask Type: Quarter casks

42.4% ABV / 70cl

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
