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!

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
