“My great-great grandfather, John Grant, born in 1805, purchased Glenfarclas Distillery for £511.19s.0d on the 8th of June 1865. To this day, Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky is distilled and matured at our family owned and run distillery, which thanks to the foresight of my forefathers remains independent. Creating a great malt whisky is a time-honoured process. Here in the heart of Speyside, my family has cherished the skills and traditions of fine malt whisky making, handing them down through six generations. We are proud to share our secrets with you”.

Colour: Vibrant straw-gold
Nose: Tempting sherry-sweet malty tones combine with delicate smokiness, releasing subtle spices. Warming the glass reveals honey, vanilla and pear drops.
Flavour: Delicately light, with a mouth-watering combination of maltiness, smokiness and sherry sweetness. Hints of dried fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves tempt the taste buds further.
Finish: Long, smooth and spicy, with a delicious, yet delicate, lingering smokiness.
Comment: Gloriously smooth, yet with the depth and finish you would normally only expect of a much older dram. A wonderfully sherried whisky, and an excellent aperitif.
Colour: A rich golden amber.
Nose: Complex, sherried, deliciously peated, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit.
Flavour: Full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours.
Finish: Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky, and distinguished.
Comment: With greater complexity than our younger whiskies, this is a great whisky drinker’s whisky.
We bottle this at 46% simply because my grandfather preferred it at this strength. It’s still a family favourite.
