Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Here we have an absolute classic Speysider from a long-time family-owned distillery. This 25 year old single malt from Glenfarclas spent its days in 100% Oloroso sherry casks. It’s complex and delicately sherried, a whisky that’s sure not to disappoint. It won gold at the 2019 International Spirits Challenge and makes a great after dinner treat. Awesome.
An all-time classic, Glenfarclas 25yo is the epitome of long-aged sherried Speyside, gorgeously smooth and silkily-textured, with rich, generous flavours of fruitcake, hazelnuts, dried fruit and a hint of dark chocolate and coffee. A thoroughly delightful dram.
Glenfarclas 25 Year Old is the quintessential Speyside sherried single malt scotch. The whisky has a smooth, silky texture, along with a rich aroma of berries, tropical fruits and fruitcake. The aroma gives way to notes of hazelnuts, toffee, dried fruits, milk chocolate and espresso on the palate. The finish is rich and everlasting, with hints of cherries, chocolate and nutty smokiness.
Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned the Silver Medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2014. In addition, it earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2009.
This family-owned distillery utilizes two types of wood for aging; in this case, the types are American refill ex bourbon barrels and European 1st fill ex-sherry casks. The price for a similar 25 year whisky is typically double or triple what this bottle costs making this an extraordinary value.
A touch of menthol. Classic Sherry notes, less pronounced than the 15 year old perhaps, but the complexity is greater.
Incredibly clean central palate, but amazingly tangy. Really zingy top notes. Sherry and creamy barley, hints of gingerbread and nutty chocolate.
Very, very long and complex finish, oak-rich, hints of smoke, cocoa, buttery…
One of our all-time favourite Speyside malts.
