A beautiful and very obscure bottle of Glenfarclas 12 year old bottled in the early 1960s by Taplows Distillers & Vinters. The label reads...
'Fine Old Glenfarclas-Glenlivet Highland Malt Whisky. Distilled at Glenfarclas Distillery. Pure Unblended. Aged in Oak Wood for not less than twelve years and with the permission of the Distillery bottled straight and unblended by Taplows.
The statement that the distillery has given permission to bottle this whisky is very interesting. Glenfarclas, being a family-run distillery, have allowed very few to put their name on their products. They have been so stringent this even started the phenomenon of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society Codes we all know and love today.
It is on good authority these were given to friends & customers of Taplows and were never for sale to the general public. I bet most of these have been consumed now and this is probably why this is the first time we're ever seen this bottle available on the market.
This particular bottle has been consigned by the original recipients' granddaughter. Her Grandfather was the editor for Harpers Wine and Spirit Gazette.
Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
If you have any questions regarding this item, please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. All questions must be submitted no later than 6 hours before the end of the auction to guarantee a response.
