The Glenfarclas distillery is one of the few remaining family-owned and -managed distilleries in Scotland. Located in Ballindalloch, Glenfarclas translates to the “valley of the green grass” and boasts the largest number of stills – six – in the scotch-producing Speyside region. With over 90,000 liters of whisky produced each year and an additional 50,000 casks maturing on-site, the distillery’s output is sure to please collectors and casual imbibers alike, who should have no trouble finding a single malt scotch whisky aged to their preferences. Glenfarclas is set apart from other single malt scotches with its smooth, full body and sherry flavor profile, though each distillation boasts unique nuances in taste.
Glenfarclas single malt scotch is bottled by age, beginning at 10 years and peaking at 40 years. The Whiskey Place currently offers a wide range of the distillery’s aged bottles. Those who have little experience with Glenfarclas and would like an introduction to its bottlings are now able to purchase a 12-year aged bottle for just $50.99. With its firm body, strong aromas, and long finish with notes of oak, the quaffable distillation should please the palates of both novices and aficionados.
Imbibers with something of a sweet tooth can enjoy the touch of almonds and bitter chocolate on the finish of the 17-year distilled Glenfarclas, now offered for a mere $89.99, or $85.49 when 12 or more bottles are ordered simultaneously. With its firm and well-rounded body and pleasingly buttery mouth-feel, the 17-year single malt whiskey makes for a fine addition to one’s own collection or as a gift for a fellow scotch whiskey lover.
