Interesting fact… Glenfarclas 40 Year Old - Scottish Classic “Pieces of Eight” whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glenfarclas 40 Year Old - Scottish Classic “Pieces of Eight” whiskey, instead of whisky.

Glenfarclas Pieces of Eight Bottling Note

An incredible 40 year old from Glenfarclas. There are just 600 bottles in the Scottish art range, all are individually numbered, and there are thirty label variations. The beautiful labels celebrate Scottish literature at its best. This has a drawing by Charles Hynes of a scene from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, entitled “Pieces of Eight”.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: An intense array of flavours, yet not one out of check. This hasn’t the same sherry-dominance as some other stallions from the GF stable. In fact, this seems pretty dead set on mouthwateringly sweet oak, and the kind of clean barley delivery that leaves us speechless. It’s the kind of whisky you keep in the glass, and nose for a long time, because it keeps developing. After a few minutes we were able to detect all kinds of spices, from exotic “marketplace” spices, to vanilla, ginger, and then some manuka honey.

Palate: The strength (43% abv) affords this a very easygoing delivery. It just rolls over the tongue in oak-led waves of rum, malt, musty woodshop oak, a touch of varnish, beeswax (honey too) and sweet spices. The sherry has a building intensity that crescendos on molasses and dried figs, some black pepper too.

Finish: Good oak-grip that holds sweetness, and a touch of dry spices. Creaking wood and barley.

Overall: One of the best whiskies we’ve ever had the good fortune to taste.
