Glenfarclas 15 Year
Glenfarclas // Speyside, Scotland
Glenfarclas has been independently-owned and operated by the Grant family since the day they hung the "Open for Business" sign in 1865. This Speyside distillery produces their aged whiskies by marrying sherry-cask single malts with oak-cask single malts at an approximate ratio of 2:1.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"A power chord of sherry and nutty Christmas cake aggressively hits the nose. In the mouth, the tartness of orange peel weaves with raisins, dark fruit, vanilla, bready malts, and sherry notes. The finish is long with nutty Christmas cake returning with a pleasant bitterness that wraps everything up into a tight package with a bow on it."
