The classic, quintessential, Sherried Speyside Single Malt.

“Glenfarclas” sounds like you are cussing in Gaelic, doesn’t it? But if you are a fan of Highland Single Malt Whiskies the word 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.”

Lots of Whiskies market themselves as special. Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is very special indeed. In fact, more than a few Single Malt fans have called it “the classic” or “the quintessential” Sherried Speysider. It is Glenfarclas’ signature Spirit, double-distilled “heart of the heart” cut aged a full quarter century in 100% Oloroso Sherry casks. Tis exact dram has been turning heads and winning awards for more than a decade — including Double Gold medals. Just this year it took home the Gold at the International Spirits Challenge 2019. Like we said… special.

Smartass corner:
Glenfarclas stands “heads and tails” above the competition… literally. The very first alcohol out of the still is foul-tasting and toxic methanol — about 1%. Everyone gets rid of that. Then comes a batch of decent spirit — about 40% of the total called the “head.” The last 40% is called the tails. About 15% - 20% of the production run in the middle is the sweetest and lightest Spirit. This is called the heart of hearts. Glenfarclas is famous for selling the heads and tails to other producers and making their Single Malt only from this precious middle Spirit.

Burton
Burton,
Incredible juicy fruit forward notes. Sherry bomb.

David,
This holds a special place in my heart as it was our favorite distillery when we were married in Scotland. Lovely sherry and a pinch of salt. Some orange marmalade, sugared dates, and chocolate in the long finish. Not as complex as many other 25 year olds but still quite good.

Ryan,
Am amazing sherried whiskey. I suggest leaving it open for a few hours before drinking so it breathes. It completely changes the scotch. Great value too

guest,
To be completely honest I prefer the 17. The aging is very aggressive in this which has over evaporated a lot of the signature glenfarclas characteristics in my opinion.

Piotr,
What a smell. Incredible, sweet, beautiful!!! Taste is complex, fruity, sweet. Nice, long finish, a little spicy - just a bit. Absolutely fantastic. One of the best I’ve had!!
