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.

John,
Not my cup o tea, it is probably one of the best for those with tolerable palats, but it was a little too harsh in the finish for me.

By far the best in the series! Don't waste time on the 10 and 12. Pay the extra for the 17 or 21.
