Description

Now in the hands of the 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. The 17 Year Old was originally bottled in limited quantities primarily for the North American, Japanese and Travel Retail markets and we have managed to source a small allocation of this unusually aged Speyside whisky. 100% Oloroso Sherry Cask maturation. 

  • 94.5 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018 Edition. 43% ABV Notes:
Nose: a significantly different nose to other 17YO from this distillery, more pineapple and custard at play. 
Taste: massively salivating with malt concentrate and a non-specific, acidic fruitiness burrowing into the taste buds; a mix of muscovado sugars and ulmo honey deals with the surprisingly confident oak. 
Finish: Wonderful cocoa, lightly but significantly oiled. Malt still has the major say even this late on, but it is brittle and bolstered by a little citrus. 
Balance: when a malt is this delicate, it is surprising the difference just 3% can make to the oils and keeping the structure together. A dram for those with patient disposition. 

  • Bronze Medal – International Spirits Challenge 2015 
  • 93 Points / Gold Medal – China Whisky Awards 
  • 97 Points / Ultimate Recommendation - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2013 
  • 95 Points / Finalist - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2012

Tasting Note: Rich amber. Complex with distinctive butterscotch and sherried fruit flavours. Develops slowly with great depth and excellent balance. Long lasting and smooth finish.
