Since 1865 Glenfarclas has been owned and managed by just one family, the Grants of Glenfarclas. It is now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation and the Grant family remain committed to the vision of creating the best Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style. This is a trio of miniatures showing some of the best examples of whisky from Glenfarclas and contains:1 x 5cl Glenfarclas 10 year old, 1 x 5cl Glenfarclas 12 year old, 1 x 5 cl Glenfarclas 105 cask strength.
Glenfarclas 10 Year Old
This 100% Oloroso sherry cask matured whisky has a vibrant, straw gold colour. The aromas are tempting with sherry sweet malty tones combining with delicate aromas releasing subtle spices. Warming the glass reveals honey vanilla and pear drops. The flavours are delicate and light with a mouthwatering combination of maltiness and sherry sweetness. There are hints of dried fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. The finish is long, smooth and spicy.
Glenfarclas 12 Year Old
This 100% Oloroso sherry cask matured whisky is a bright amber-gold colour. Its aromas are fresh and beautifully bright with sherried fruit combining with a tempting spicy sweetness and a hint of oak. This is a full bodied whisky which has flavours of sherried fruit, oak and delicious sweet sensations. The finish is long and flavoursome with a lingering spiciness.
Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength
The smoothness of the 105 makes it drinkable at cask strength but we recommend adding a splash of water to fully explore its great depth and flavours. The 105 is a deep peaty gold in colour. It has a complex aroma profile which is oaky and fruity with apples and pears as well as showing a tempting dark toffee sweetness. The flavours are dry and assertive, developing quickly to reveal a rich spiciness that is combioned with a hint of oak and sherried fruit. The 105 is amazingly smooth given its strength and is wonderfully warming with a lingering spiciness that is also very rounded.
