Glenfarclas 25 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky
2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal Winner.
Amber with dark gold highlights. The nose is complex, yet refined with tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins. The palate is full-bodied and robust, the sherry and oak fight for your attention yet neither are overpowering. The finish is intense, long lasting, dry and malty. A beautiful dark chocolate taste 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.
