Glenfarclas 21 Year
Glenfarclas // Highlands, Scotland
Though their house style of whisky has been defined as heavy on the Sherry casks, Glenfarclas doesn't fall in the sticky-sweet-am-I-drinking-rum style of whisky. The malted barley is always present and the barrel aging offers more than just dried fruit. So they've got that going for them, which is nice.
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.
Cask Typeex-bourbon and ex-sherry
"Apple cider, honey, wool, and roasted barley make your acquaintance before dried apricots and wood spices take over. Malted barley and more honey greet you in the middle saddled with a pinch of tobacco. The finish is dry and has a lingering taste of mint."
