Glenfarclas 50 Bottling Note

We’ve teamed up with the guys over at Glenfarclas to bring you this absolutely stunning single cask, 50 year old whisky. This is one-of-a-kind bottling, as evidenced by the bottling number "decanter 1 of 1".

This bottle was Specially selected by George Grant for the chaps at Master of Malt. Distilled and bottled by J & G Grant.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A wonderfully intense array of sherry notes, but it has a great youthfulness to it, and it offers up huge notes of pear, cantaloupe melon liqueur and apple peel. After a time in the glass rancio notes develop, and it reminds us in many ways of a very good, old cognac, but with considerably more depth. Come back to the nose and you’ll be greeted with mouthwatering suggestions of seaside saltiness.

Palate: Very fresh, especially considering its age. Great ‘Farclas notes of calves’ leather and overripe grape, with a big hit of tomato stems (not what we first came up with, but for legal reasons it’ll have to do), and wood varnish.

Finish: That mustiness you associate with stonkingly good sherry casked whisky, but it arrives later on in this one, with a surge of leather-bound books on mahogany shelves and touches of pepper and brandy butter.

Overall: A superb example of a very old whisky retaining an astonishing level of youth and vibrancy, whilst exhibiting a tremendously complex, utterly distinctive flavour.
