Malt Maniac's "Bang for your Buck" Whisky. 
 
Widely recognized as one of the few distilleries to have been owned by the same family for 150 years, as well as producing single malts of exceptional quality, Glenfarclas is one of the most universally beloved Whiskies.

Distillery 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.

The Glenfarclas 105 is a deep Whisky with Sherried undertones. This smooth Golden Liquid is complimented perfectly with a little drop of water, to really allow the palate to get to the depths of the taste. In 2004, it was named Malt Maniacs “Bang for your buck”, a testament to its quality and affordability.

It was the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 in its respective category!

Stronger than I usually like but a decent scotch all the same.

Not as smooth as I had hoped. Lots of pepper, long finish... not my favorite

Not bad, just really don't understand the draw of cask strength.

excellent
Mark
Mark,
High scent of alcohol naturally with a sharp bite yet mellows calmly with water or a smidgen of ice. Mild aftertaste and sweetness. Very nice drink to enjoy life with.

Corey,
Glenfarclas is unique. This scotch has their signature flavor, with a sherry punch. Strong and lingering. Very solid.
Richard
Richard,
Not the sherry bomb glenfarclas I expected. Needs water for sure. On the nose I got, sour, yeast and dried fruits. I got raisins and plum wine on the palate and a short finish. I think I need a couple more sit downs with this.
