The Glenfarclas £511.19s.0d Family Reserve is a special released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of family ownership of the Glenfarclas distillery. On the 8th of June 1865, John Grant, 1st generation of the Grant family, bought the distillery for £511.19s.0d. His grandsons, John and George, later formed the company J. & G. Grant and to this day it remains an independent business and firmly in the hands of the familys 5th & 6th generation.
The £511.19s.0d Family Reserve, a non-chill filtered bottling at 43%, is a vatting of predominantly first fill sherry butts. A copy of the original bill of sale is included with each bottle along with a note from George Grant explaining the significance of the £511.19s.0d Family Reserve to the Grant family tradition.
|Glenfarclas: Sweet and rich sherry, like a toffee syrup over a freshly toasted French baguette. Fresh fruit smothered in heather honey. Nose ending almost like a sweet port.|
|Glenfarclas: A dry yet sweet taste, a lovely balance of fruit, light nuttiness and milk chocolate develop, followed by a very palatable long and easy finish|
|Glenfarclas: Long easy finish that has neither highs nor lows. Lovely balance of fruit, light nuttiness and milk chocolate.|
