Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
The first ever core range non-vintage Glenfarclas 35-year-old, this First Release appeared early in 2023 after being bottled towards the end of 2022, and is presented in a very cool 'warehouse doors' wooden box.
As one would expect from Glenfarclas, there's no special gimmick or marketing story here - refreshingly, all that happened was that the distillery manager Callum Fraser found a batch of 35-year-old sherry casks in the warehouse and they were great, so here we are. Bottled at a very approachable 43%, this is aged whisky as it should be - no bells and whistles, just great old Speyside single malt whisky.
Please note that Glenfarclas 35-year-old is Strictly Maximum 1 Bottle Per Customer.
