Glenfarclas 25 Year
Glenfarclas // Highlands, Scotland
This family-owned distillery utilizes two types of wood for aging; in this case, the types are American refill ex bourbon barrels and European 1st fill ex-sherry casks. The price for a similar 25 year whisky is typically double or triple what this bottle costs making this an extraordinary value.
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
"Fairly intense notes of dried fruits, macadamia nuts, vanilla, and wood spices are found on the nose. The whisky is full, moderately sweet, and has a touch of tobacco and mint on the palate. The woody influence comes into play a bit more than younger expressions creating a drier mouthfeel on the finish. There aren't any real surprises here, just a solid (albeit not uber complex) whisky. "
