Glenfarclas 21 year-old single malt is like drinking Sherried velvet.

“Glenfarclas” sounds like you are cussing in Gaelic, doesn’t it? But if you are a fan of Highland single malt Whiskies the word Glenfarclas is music to your ears. It means “valley of the green grass”… which perfectly describes its Banffshire location. It was founded in 1836 by Robert Hay, but was sold to the famous John Grant in 1865. The Grant family owns and operates the distillery to this day, making it one of the few remaining independent and family-owned distilleries in Scotland. Glenfarclas produces a range of classic Speyside-style Whiskies with a Sherry influence — all of them tasty and popular with the Whisky “in-crowd.”

Glenfarclas 21 Year Old is rich and thick with a heavy influence of the Sherry casks it has aged in for more than two decades. In many ways, this fine single malt is a classic Speyside-style Whisky. But in other ways it is totally different. The complex aromas and fruitiness are there like other Speyside spirits, but there is a buttery richness that stands out uniquely. And the full bodied mouth-feel is nearly Liqueur-like in texture, but the flavors are balanced and well-rounded.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Glenfarclas is one of the last distilleries in Scotland that still uses direct heating, for all of its stills.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
In 1973, the first visitor center was opened in the Glenfarclas Distillery.
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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
