Wise beyond its age.
This is one of the few remaining independent and family-owned distilleries in Scotland. It was started in 1836 by Robert Hay, and bought by John Grant a few decades later. Nowadays it's run by the 6th generation of the Grant family, making it truly independent, which is kind-of refreshing these days. Glenfarclas distillery owns six stills, which are the largest in all of Highland, and produce a typical Speyside-style Whisky, which is heavily Sherry influenced. They mature their malts in traditional dunnage warehouses, where they have stock back to 1952.
Wise beyond its years, this Whisky is complex, has depth and typifies a smooth Sherry-matured malt. Reminiscent of Christmas with stewed fruits and an enduring smokiness that gives an overall warming and thoroughly enjoyable dry Whisky. There is something unique here that is not often present in Sherry matured Whisky of this vintage.
