Glenfarclas is renowned for producing Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky in the traditional Speyside style, with a heavy Sherry influence. The 15 Year Old is an excellent opportunity to observe the unfolding and development of these much admired characteristics. With greater complexity than the younger whiskies, Glenfarclas 15 Year Old is quite simply, a great whisky drinker's whisky. The 15 Year Old is bottled at 46% because the grandfather of the Master Distiller preferred it at this strength, and following in tradition, it's still a family and indeed, world favourite.
In his 2007 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray gave Glenfarclas 15 Year Old a score of 95/100, one of the highest scores he has awarded. Now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation of the family, the Glenfarclas Distillery remains committed to the vision of creating the best quality single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style.
Tasting Note: Complex, sherried, peated nose, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit. Full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours. Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky and distinguished
