Glenfarclas 40 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
Glenfarclas 40 Year Old Single Malt Whisky was launched at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival; it is a truly astonishing whisky. It offers all of the Sherried Glenfarclas character and exceptional maturity too, having been distilled in the 1960's.
Colour: Rich, dark, mysterious gold.
Nose: Complex and rich; calves leather, cedar wood cigar boxes and cocoa. Then waves of sweet Sherry, chocolate orange, marmalade and butterscotch.
Palate: One of the richest and most intense Glenfarclas you'll find. The chocolate richness develops with notes of chocolate raisins, dates and figs, orange and maraschino cherry ending with spices and thick espresso coffee.
Finish: Sublimely intense waves of mocha and gingerbread. There are deep leathery notes clinging to the end.
