Glenfarclas 21 - with '101 Whiskies to Try' Book
70cl, 43% abv
This beautifully boxed gift set includes a Glenfarclas 21 Year Old Single Malt Whisky and a hardback edition of Ian Buxton's book 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die. Aged for 21 years in the finest oak casks, this Glenfarclas 21 year old single malt whisky has a beautiful dark amber colour, notes of fresh vanilla, sherry and a touch of smoke. It is incredibly smooth and rounded on the palate with a balanced fruit, spice and smoke flavour. The book is a must read pocket-sized guide to 101 whiskies that one should literally try before one dies. It avoids the pretentiously obscure, the ridiculously limited and the wildly expensive. Whisky expert Ian Buxton recommends an eclectic selection of old favourites, bright newcomers and mystifyingly unknown drams that are asking to be drunk. It makes a great gift.
