Glenfarclas Movember Bottling Note

This limited edition Glenfarclas has been bottled in partnership with online retailers, Mo-Bro’s, and poor-quality dresser-uppers Master of Malt in support of Movember. Movember is a men’s health charity which raises awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. £10 from the sale of every bottle will be donated to Movember. For more information on Movember visit www.movember.com.

Distilled in September 2002 and bottled in September 2011, this most unusual 9 year old Glenfarclas has been taken from two Oloroso sherry hogshead casks, and can be perfectly described as an ‘aperitif whisky’ - nutty and intensely savoury.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A whiff of salted almonds is overtaken by sherry – somewhere between Manzanilla and Fino – surprising, since this was matured solely in Oloroso. With warmth applied, the caramel-rich Oloroso starts to come through, with a hint of Brazil nut shell.

Palate: Starts off big with just a smidge of sweetness before the savoury Fino takes over. An almost saline note creeps through before moving into blue agave tequila, with a hint of lime zest bitterness.

Finish: Dries out, with freshly-shaved oak, Christmas spices, and a touch of pine. Very moreish.

Overall: A seriously grown-up whisky, miles away from a standard Glenfarclas - further even than the refill Bourbon matured Family Casks. Glenfarclas, usually an after-dinner treat, is firmly in the aperitif camp here. Superb with smoked almonds or sharp cheeses.

User Reviews of the Glenfarclas - Movember 2011

Great whisky, wish I bought two...

I really enjoyed this whisky and regret that I only bought one bottle. Very thick and lush sherry monster, that does fine in December as well. One of my favourites for 2011.

You really must ry this one!

I bought a bottle of this Glenfarclas because I was curious and also to support Movember and the contribution to prostrate cancer.

First impressions were of an unusually dark whisky, when poured this impression was reinforced, but get your nose into the glass and the aroma of this is almost tangible. I defy anyone who remembers old fashioned travelling funfairs of their youth not to be taken back there, it smells of toffee apples, real, old fashioned toffee apples!

In the mouth, it is huge, smooth, immensely caramalized with a nice bit of fire and a wonderful after taste that simply makes you want to take another sip or two! If tasting is believing, then I am a believer!

I am going to get another bottle of this right away as I am so impressed that I am quickly converting my malt loving friends to this wonderful Glenfarclas! Superb!!!
