Glenfarclas 21 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Dark amber-gold. The nose is intense, full of aromas like sherried fruit, tropical fruit, nutmeg, and almond with slight citrus notes at the end. The palate is full-bodied, rich and rounded. It develops slowly into fruity and spicy flavors. The finish is long-lasting and smooth with a chocolate feel at the back of your throat.
Since 1865, Glenfarclas has been owned and managed by just one family, the Grants of Glenfarclas. On the 8th of June 1865, John Grant acquired the tenancy for the Rechlerich Farm and as part of the transaction purchased the Glenfarclas Distillery. To this day Glenfarclas is one of the only few distilleries in Scotland to remain family owned and managed. Now in the hands of the 5th and 6th generations, the Grants remain committed to the vision of creating the best quality Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style.
“A good gulp of hot Scotch Whisky at bedtime–it’s not very scientific, but it helps!”
Alexander Fleming, Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today Single Malt Scotch Whiskies are prized by enthusiasts and aficionados the world over for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition these must be produced in Scotland from a single distillery and made entirely from malted barley, using a pot still. The appearance, aroma and flavor of a Single Malt Scotch Whisky can vary widely depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands Islands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
