1973 Glenfarclas Highlander Inn Exclusive Single Cask 32 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$3,499.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50.8%

This is one in a series of bottlings for the Highlander Inn, a Speyside institution based in Craigellachie. Each year the proprietors visit distilleries and bottlers trying to find a very special single cask malt to offer exclusively through the Inn. This involves sifting through warehouses and tasting several samples before deciding at a final 'nosing and tasting' which cask will make the grade for the next "Annual Single Cask Bottling".
The notes from the Inn describe this edition as follows...
"In July 2005 we approached George Grant, the sixth generation of the Grant family of Glenfarclas, with the idea of bottling a single cask as the first official distillery bottling for the Highlander Inn. As a new venture in the whisky tourism industry, it was the ideal distillery to match with the Highlander Inn as "the Spirit of Independence".

We visited the distillery and sampled over 2 dozen casks of varying ages in different traditional 'dunnage' warehouses. Then we came to Cask no. 4796, distilled on 21st May 1973. That was it ~ the one for us. Having lain undisturbed for over 32 years, the angels agreed to surrender only 234 bottles (70cl) when bottled by the distillery at its natural cask strength of 50.8%.

Maggie Riegler of the Greenhall Gallery in Craigellachie was once more commissioned to produce the label in her own inimitable style ~ note Tatsuya's 1970's VW Beetle at the bottom of the picture! The original painting hangs proudly in the bar. Michael Jackson again agreed to write the official tasting notes which are shown on the back label. It was available for purchase from the Highlander Inn but quickly sold out."
234 bottles produced. One only to sell.
