Glenfarclas 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$120. 00 Bottle
Glenfarclas - 'Glen of the green grassland' - has an enviable reputation amongst whisky lovers around the world. Noted Whisky writer, Micheal Jackson comments of the distillery: 'Among the handful of truly stand-alone distilleries in Scotland, Glenfarclas is the most assertive of its independence, by far the longest established, and the best known to connoisseurs. Its whiskies are in the top flight among Speysiders, though they do not enjoy the wider popular reputation of some similar examples from this region.' Jim Murray has enthused over this bottling. Tasting note: Deep gold. Shortbread and enticing vanilla custard on the nose; decidedly fuller, richer and overall slightly better balanced than the 10 year old, however, there's an odd match box/pickled onion flavour and a sharp edge to the profile that leaves you wanting. Concludes semi sweet, spiced up with gingery warmth but a little thin to finish. 43% Alc./Vol.
