This 50 Years Old whisky is from independent family-owned distillery Glenfarclas. This limited-edition is to commemorate the 50th anniversary of family member and chairman, John Grant first starting in the industry.
The oldest family-owned distillery in Speyside, John is the fifth generation of the Grant family to take the helm at Glenfarclas. The foresight of his ancestors has allowed the distillery, under John’s guidance, to produce and bottle a number of rare single malts spanning seven decades, including this latest release.
Described as, a stunning copper in colour, reminiscent of the magnificent stills at the distillery, Glenfarclas 50 years old has been bottled at 50% ABV and tells the story of the distillery through its aroma and flavours. Selected for bottling by Distillery Manager, Callum Fraser, and Managing Director, Douglas Belford, the whisky demonstrates the skill of the distillery team 50 years ago, lead at the time by then distillery manager, Douglas MacDonald.
By adding water, the whisky evolves further, creating more of a lightly peated aroma on the nose and a sweeter, woodier taste on the palate.

|Distillery: The malt offers marzipan, almond and cedar wood on the nose, with a sweet and smoky hint giving way to stewed apples and dark chocolate.|
|Distillery: On the palate, the rich velvety dark chocolate notes lead to flavours of treacle toffee, mixed peel and a slightly smoky, sweet taste, surprisingly mellow for a single malt of this age.|
|Distillery: The flavours coat the mouth and provide a gentle, smooth finish which lingers for a long time.|
