2006 Glenfarclas The Family Casks Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Summer 2022 Release
Distilled in 2006 and drawn from single sherry butt #2526 before being bottled in 2022, this Summer 2022 edition had a fairly large outturn of 612 bottles. The deep colour anticipates a sherry bomb. 58.9% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
While many distilleries offer single casks, allowing an opportunity to taste a more distinctive and 'natural' version of an otherwise familiar spirit, Glenfarclas’ Family Casks go one step further: If your wallet permits, you can pick across vintages spanning five decades. At the time of writing, the Grant family has offered hundreds of vintage malts from the early 1950s up to 2014. No one year is quite like the next, and cask aging varies from release to release. You never quite know what you’re going to get. Our latest shipment concentrates on sherry matured malts, which, in our opinion, traditionally work best with the distillery's heavy, pungent and fruity new-make. Direct-fired stills contribute further character, while traditional dunnage warehouses keep a constant temperature so the whiskies are geared towards long, slow maturation. That doesn't mean these selections don't sometimes peak relatively young. Expect the unexpected!
