- Glenfarclas 1996 Family Casks Release VII
Single cask sherry butt #1306. Distilled 1996 and bottled May 2011 yielding 593 bottles.
Together with George Grant, this fantastic whisky was selected by the panel of visitors who came to an event at Glenfarclas - 'The Family Casks - help choose the 1996 bottling', held during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2011.
One of the famous vintage casks from the Glenfarcas Family Casks series running consecutively covering the years from 1952 to 1996.
Roasted Chestnuts, deep sherry, Christmas cake flavours, toffee chocolate, light vanilla custard, old leather, the smell of a lovely cared for old book. Chocolate orange dried apricots. A cinnamon tanginess.
A wonderfully balanced whisky very rounded.
