"It was my forefathers that made Glenfarclas happen.
My grandfather experimented, by filling half a dozen Sherry casks
and then deciding that Oloroso Sherry was the best and where we want to be."

- George S. Grant, 6th generation of the family behind Glenfarclas 

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

Glenfarclas Vintage 1996 Oloroso Sherry Cask is one of their “Limited Rare Bottlings.” Oloroso Sherry casks are one of the two most sought-after casks for aging single malt Whisky. And this fine dram has been aged for almost two decades, 19 year to be exact in these rare casks. These premium bottlings are normally set aside for the German market, but why should the Germans get all the good stuff? Somebody must owe Uncle Flaviar a favour or two because he got his hands on a few cases.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
