Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Glenfarclas 105 to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Glenfarclas 105 Bottling Note

Glenfarclas 105 is a superb cask strength whisky, with a history that can be traced to 1968. When the original incarnation was released that year, Glenfarclas became the first distillery to release a barrel proof single malt whisky.

The bottling was eventually re-named to 105, referring to its alcohol content in British Proof, which equates now to 60% ABV.

The 105 doesn't carry an age statement presently, making it rare among Glenfarclas bottlings. Although, there are suggestions that it is matured for 8-10 years in a combination of both ex-sherry and ex-bourbon barrels.

Drying, assertive and richly spiced, the 105 makes for a superb dram, one the Malt Maniacs rated as the best “Bang for your buck” whisky in 2004. Add a drop of water if you please to explore its depth - and don't be put off by that ABV, there's plenty of flavour here to enjoy.

Glenfarclas 105 Reviews

What has happened?

What has happened to this whisky? I have enjoyed quite a few bottles of this in the past but when I looked at this one it seemed a lot paler in colour and in the glass it just didn't have the same huge sherried Christmas cake nose. Now, I'm not saying that this is a bad whisky, and I am certainly enjoying it as the bottle empties, but it's just not quite the same. Everything changes, I suppose, and not always for the best.

Just exquisite in every way! If there were 6 stars, this would be me!

The 105 is my all time favourite malt. I know it’s a young malt compared to many others, but somehow there’s no other quite like it.

Some of the comments mention Whiskey!! that comes from the USA or The Republic of Ireland what they’ve been sampling is Whisky.!!

What a lovely surprise!

Having tried the 15 year, I bought a 20cl first to try. Giving it time in the glass and just a wee bit of water really brings out this lovely dram. It can be tasted neat (which I rarely do with at such abv) but it's really nice and nothing like it's 15 year old brother.
Very possibly will be buying a 70cl...

Wait for it to wake up!

Hhhhmmmm addendum
Over the last day I have been 'actively oxygenating" the 105. I started this practice some time ago. I shake the bottle vigorously to get as much of the liquid bubbling as possible, then take the Cork out and leave it for an hour. Then I repeat the process a few times.
I strongly recommend this procedure.
After doing this, the 105, like most whiskies, has transformed. However the change has been profound with this particular whisky.
It now has body, depth and a much more pronounced and satisfying sweetness. Even at full strength it is not only drinkable, but lovely. For the price and age, this has become a wonderful whisky.

I received a bottle of this today and have had a few drams from it. The most striking aspect of this whisky is the intense driness. I don't think I have experienced that in a single malt or indeed any whisky before. This has a very thin mouthfeel. No oiliness at all. Bizarre.
The nose is... sharp! It has almost a vinegarry sharpness but without nastiness. I feel my bottle badly needs to wake up.
The taste is of diluted Heather honey, perhaps with a touch of lemon. It is not complex, but it is satisfying. This is obviously a young dram. Diluted to a more reasonable 45% alcohol, it is pleasant, sweet, subtle and restrained but it does lack depth. I believe that if this had been released at 40%, very few people would be singing its praises. I will return to this review when my 105 has had a chance to breathe.

This was a present but for what it's worth a good bottle of whiskey.

The distillery needs to put there money where there mouth is and at least put an age statement on the label.
I for one will never buy a bottle of whiskey without an age statement.

Add one drop of water

First tried this in Glenfarclas distillery and it was amazing what one drip of water from a teaspoon did to the complexity and flavour
