New Glenfarclas The Family Casks Direct Imports
Here we go again with another selection of Glenfarclas liquid history selling sans wholesaler! The Family Casks Collection has become a minor phenomenon that magnetises buyers from the very finest bars and whisky shops around the globe. Our latest shipment focusses on more recent vintages. Reviews from the Malt Maniacs at whiskyfun.com consistently score these upwards of 85-90 points (they’re hard markers, so that’s very high on most taster’s scales). If you are a collector or simply looking for that something special in the world of Scotch whisky, these are for you. Stocks of all vintages are in small volumes only. See below or click here for our complete selection of Family casks currently available.
Commencing in 2007 as 43 single casks spanning five decades, George Grant speaks candidly about the collection that came about after a high profile rival (Macallan) released a similar range circa 2005, boasting only they had the inventory to pull it off. With six generations of family pride at stake, Grant launched his own liquid genealogy. An exercise in one-upmanship became an ongoing concern after a single bar in Japan purchased 178 bottles. 380 bottlings later, more than one collector has followed suit securing complete sets. Grant remains emphatic that these are for people who buy and drink whisky but concedes, “Whisky is now deemed as a safe investment. Look at the past 10 years and it outstrips everything – property, oil, you name it.”
These whiskies are vintage, then cask No. specific. More than one cask may be released under the one vintage).
