The 90s called: they have a Whisky for you.

They say that fathers build, sons expand, and grandsons destroy. But with Grant family of Glenfarclas it's different: every new generation made the Whisky-making business stronger while keeping the ancient recipe intact. They are one of the few remaining independent and family-owned distilleries in Scotland. It all started in 1836 by Robert Hay, and bought by John Grant a few decades later. Nowadays it's run by the 6th generation of the Grant family, who own six stills, which are the largest in all of Highland, and produce a typical Speyside-style Whisky, which is heavily Sherry influenced. They mature their malts in traditional dunnage warehouses, where they have stock back to 1952.

This very bottle, the lavishly exclusive vintage from 1990 (only 3000 bottles made), part of the Family Casks range, is an unbelievably rich and complex expression only tradition, time, and a good old Oloroso Sherry Hoghshead can create. Have we mentioned this graybeard is goddamn complex? A harmony of Sherry, Oak, fruits and a hint of smoke is exactly what one expects when opening a grand vintage Whisky.

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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
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.
In 1973, the first visitor center was opened in the Glenfarclas Distillery.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
