We call Glenfarclas £511.19s.0d a Whisky lover's bargain.  
 
 
Glenfarclas… sounds like a cuss in Gaelic, doesn’t it? Like if someone stole your sheep you might say, “That old Glenfarclas got the flock out of here!” But if you are a fan of Highland Single Malt Whiskies — and Speyside drams at that — then the word Glenfarclas is music to your ears
 
In Gaelic, Glenfarclas 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 £511.19s.0d is likely the oddest-named Whisky you will see this year. And no, the bottle does NOT cost over 511 British Pounds (it is quite a bit more affordable), but the story is worth a million. You see, June 8th, 1865, was the date when John Grant purchased the distillery for the special one-day-only-bargain price of… you've guessed it… £511.19s.0d
 
That was exactly 150 years ago last year, and to commemorate the anniversary of that auspicious beginning, they commissioned this special edition. The entire limited run of Glenfarclas £511.19s.0d was aged in first-fill Sherry casks from start to finish. So you are in for a treat here. This special edition will have lovely raisin and fig flavours with the smooth, grassy character that Glenfarclas is famous for. And we call that a bargain.

Bryan
Bryan,
A delightful sipping whisky. A good nose hints of honey, lemon and cloves. Taste is informed by the sherry cask finish, spicy, fruit cake top notes. An intriguing liquorice end to its very long finish. A touch of water widened the taste.
