Scores and Reviews

OTHER - Nose
Definitely on the sherry side. Caramelised nuts, almost praline. Old leather. Sweet bakery notes: crème caramel, marmalade. A distant bacon echo.
Palate
Velvety, sweet at start then spices and chocolate burst. Ginger, red chilli. Marzipan.
Finish
Long, sweet and nutty.
Comment
A bold character. Rich, sherry-armoured. Dangerously palatable even without water.

Martine Nouet - Whisky Magazine Issue 47 Nose
Robust. Starts with cream toffee, honey, light cereal/hay. Then stewed autumn fruits, cake mix, toasted almond, raisins, maple syrup.
Palate
Tongue-coating. Deep. Dried fruits. A good attack with a sweet concentrated start. Good balance. Cognac like.
Finish
Spicy. Tingling and dry.
Comment
Fine mix of dry and savoury. A grower.

The Producer

Glenfarclas Distillery, Speyside

Glenfarclas Distillery, Speyside

Glenfarclas can trace its history back to 1836, when tenant farmer Robert Hay founded the distillery on the Rechlerich Farm, on the Ballindalloch Estate in Banffshire. In 1865 John Grant bought the distillery for the princely some of £511.19s.0d, when he signed the tenancy agreement for the farm. The distillery is still in the Grant family and the present John Grant is the 5th generation of the family to run the property.

Glenfarclas is a classic Speyside with notes of sweet fruit and spice and a touch of peat in the older bottlings.

The Region

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
