An absolute classic Speyside from a long-time family-owned distillery is 25 year old single malt whisky rested in 100% Oloroso sherry casks. It’s complex and delicately sherry whisky that’s sure not to disappoint. Bottled at 43% abv, this is an award-winning expression from one of the oldest independent distilleries in Scotland.
The year 2011 marked the 175th anniversary of licensed distilling at Glenfarclas. Purchased by a John Grant in 1856 as a supplementary to a farm (where it gets its name "glen of the green grassland") and is family owned under the direction of John L. S. Grant (Chairman and 5th generation) and his son George (Director of Sales and 6th generation). The spring water provides plentiful to the farm is one of the essential components contributing to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas highland Single Malt Whisky. A combination with the finest malted barley to provide a mash is distilled twice in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills – the largest in Speyside. Only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol are collected and it has been said that “it is the whisky they don’t use that makes Glenfarclas great”. Once the new spirit is collected, two thirds is filled into the finest Spanish Sherry oak casks and one third into plain oak casks in which to lie maturing over many years producing the lustrous colour and flavour for which Glenfarclas has become noted.
25 Year Old Whisky provides a complex yet refined feast to the senses and includes tempting aromas of sherry and oak which is heavily sherried. Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither is overpowering. The nose is floral with complex but gentle notes of sherry, dark chocolate, oak, orange marmalade, and some hints of nuts. The palate is slightly smoky accompanied by coffee notes that arise with continuing hints of nuts, dark chocolate, oak, sherry, and leather. The finish is long and intense but still warm and welcoming with notes of cherry, cocoa, leather and oak
