Description

This bottling combines 10 of the last remaining quarter casks at Glenfarclas, of which the youngest was 25 years old. Bottled at cask strength of 42.4% vol, the 10 casks only yielded 900 bottles

Quarter casks are so called as they contain a quarter of the volume of a traditional sherry butt, approximately 125 litres.

Smaller casks mean more of the spirit is in contact with the wood – the contents therefore mature faster, but also lose more to the ‘angel’s share’ than larger hogsheads (250L) or butts (500L).

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Sweet, fresh honeycomb, sherry prominent but not over powering. A very well balanced nose. No oak or age, a very youthful 25YO.
Taste
Distillery:  A dark bitter chocolate, light ginger, caramel and treacle pudding topped with vanilla custard. An ever changing taste bringing in all the quarter casks that were used to make this delightful whisky.
Finish
Distillery:  Long, fresh, with granny smith apples coming forth.
