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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
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.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
