Glenfarclas 1953 Bottling Note
This is an incredibly rare single cask whisky that’s exclusively available through Master of Malt and, at 58 years of age, it's the oldest spirit ever released by Glenfarclas.
It was chosen by a panel consisting of Serge Valentin, key member of the internationally renowned Malt Maniacs, our Sales Director Ben Ellefsen, Michal Kowalski of investment company Wealth Solutions and George Grant, of Glenfarclas.
They assessed the distillery’s rarest and oldest stock, the remaining 4 casks distilled in 1953, and unanimously selected cask 1674 for bottling.
It’s a Spanish sherry cask filled on 20 November 1953, and the angels have been greedy - after 58 years of slow maturation in Glenfarclas’ traditional Highland Dunnage warehouses, the 1953 cask yielded just 400 bottles.
This exceptional whisky is of course bottled at cask strength and is naturally coloured and non-chill filtered.
This exceptional whisky deserves a special setting. Each bottle is accompanied by a special book written by Ian Buxton, a well-known Scotch whisky enthusiast and writer, the author of the official history of the Glenfarclas distillery entitled Glenfarclas – An Independent Distillery. The whole set is enclosed in a plain oak box.
