Glenfarclas--meaning "glen of the green grassland"-- has been independently-owned and operated by the Grant family since the day they hung the "Open for Business" sign in 1865. This 15 year-old single malt is aged in European oak ex-oloroso sherry casks with a majority being 1st and 2nd fill casks. Bottled at 92 proof.

Tasting Notes

"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."
