Glenfarclas is considered by many to be one of the finest distilleries in Speyside. Its direct-fired stills produce a heavy single malt that is almost exclusively matured in Jerez sherry casks. The distillery focuses on single malt over blends, and a cool microclimate around the distillery that means that their casks are particularly stingy to the "angels," resulting in an incredible depth of stock. Glenfarclas also feel they share some credit for the modern day love of cask strength whisky, introducing their acclaimed 105 proof expressions back in 1968.
Bottled to celebrate the distillery's licensing in 1836 (they are believed to have been illicit for a number of years before this). This Chairman's Reserve is a marriage of 4 specially selected sherry casks from the 1960s, with a combined age of 175 years old.
One of 1296 bottles.
