Plenty of sherry and fruit flavours in this! Glenfarclas 12 year old was originally bottled for export and travel retail markets. In 2006, it was named the “Best Sherried Whisky” in the Single Malt World Cup, and in 2007 and 2008 it won Gold at the Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival. The whiskies are matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso sherry casks and are married together for a few months. The distillery focuses on producing light, sweet and easy drinking whisky.
Big, rich, appetising nose – Dundee cake, oak, sherry, ripe fruits, nutty, with hints of lemon. A robust palate, deep and fruity, with rich oaky notes. Spicy, lingering finish. A well-rounded, confident, first-class whisky.
