Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Plus 105 and 25 Year Old Miniatures
With Glenfarclas 15YO on the rise, we've snapped up these special gift packs selling at the same price as a standalone bottle. Each pack includes one 700ml Glenfarclas 15YO plus two 50ml miniatures (1 x Glenfarclas 105 and 1 x Glenfarclas 25YO). That's over $30 worth of FREE WHISKY! Slick presentation is an added bonus. The box comes designed with a clever drawer concealing the two samplers. It's an impressive gift for anyone just starting their journey into malts, but will equally satisfy long-time enthusiasts.
Notes on Glenfarclas 15YO... Famous as one of Speyside’s most masculine whiskies, Glenfarclas 15 is matured in 60% x-Sherry casks, with the remainder x-Bourbon, but with a difference. The latter barrels are shaved back in order to minimise their flavour input, putting the focus almost completely on the sherry. Bottled at 46%, the result is one of most full-bodied in the Glenfarclas stable. It's also one that tasters tend to notice the most batch variation in. Re-tasted in early 2022, the latest bottling takes some time to develop and blow off minor sulphur blemishes. Aromas pick up speed, echoed in attractively sherried flavours of raisin cake, fruit mince pie and digestif biscuits. The finish adds suggestions of pickled ginger and baking spices. Though not long, the flavours are surprisingly intense, well-proportioned and approachable without dilution. Give a freshly opened bottle thirty minutes to begin to show its best. 46% Alc./Vol.
Notes on Glenfarclas 105... Cask strength whiskies have not always been available to the general public. In fact, the very idea was incidental, and only materialised in 1968 when a fourth generation member of the Grant family bottled a single cask straight from the warehouse, and sent the bottles to family and friends as Christmas gifts. George S. Grant created a simple, hand written label for the bottles noting only the name of the distillery and the strength of the whisky (which happened to be 105 British Proof.) By the end of January the recipients requested further bottles. George obliged, and since then, Glenfarclas 105 has gone onto become one of the most highly sought after expressions in the Glenfarclas range. 60% Alc./Vol.
Notes on Glenfarclas 25YO... Some real class and depth to the nose which offers powerful aromas of prune, roasted nuts, honey and freshly polished floorboards. Smells expensive. Mouthfilling, and with an unexpected degree of 'tingle' for whisky of this age. Glorious at mid palate, serving up delicious honey and dried fruit flavours over rich, spicy, sugar-laced malt. Medium long with a delicate aftertaste of dried fruit and sweet leather. Aristocratic. Would make a perfect after-dinner malt. Some tasters drew comparisons with Macallan 18 of yesteryear. 43% Alc./Vol.
