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.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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).
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.
