1966 Glenfarclas Fino Casks Single Malt 700ml
As a contrast to the typically rich, Oloroso influence that Glenfarclas is synonymous with:
The three casks used here (#4194, #4195 and #4197) previously held Fino Dry Sherry.
Matured for 47 Long years, this is the first installment to mark the six generations of the Grant family's involvement with the distillery. Each generation is expected to have its own respective release. Distilled in 1966 and bottled in December 2013.
A very special Glenfarclas limited to 1444 bottles worldwide.
Palate: Sharper and fresher than expected from the comparatively soft and gentle nose, with old oak, leafy ferns and barrel char balanced by peach, ripe pear, boiled sweets, citrusy honey and lemon zest. More depth of flavour comes from dark liquorice and sweet woody spice.
Finish: Old oak, sharp woody spice, nutmeg and sweet butter. It hangs around for a while, with toffee and zesty citrus notes lingering.
Comment: Further demonstration that guessing what a whisky will taste like simply from the previous occupant of a cask is hard. There is some fino-sherry character to the whisky, but it’s run through with honey, toffee and fruit, with a sweetness not often found in a dry sherry. Fortunately, the wine left lots of character in the wood, which we can now taste in the whisky.
