Back in June the awesome guys at Glenfarclas released a new 60 Year Old Expression and I really want a bottle.
It's my 40th next year and so i'm not quite the same age as this dram but i still want to have one, just to open on occasion with friends and toast a really special occasion.
The official notes say - Matured in a first fill sherry butt, it has an incredibly dark, rich mahogany colour. It is surprisingly vibrant with lots of dried fruits, demerara sugar and spice coming through on the nose as well as the rich, oaky tannins that one would expect from a whisky of this venerable age. The sherry influence really comes through on the palate, with rich treacle, bitter coffee and espresso notes all making an appearance. The finish is the longest I have ever experienced – 20 minutes later you will still be able to taste the subtle nuances of this incredible dram.'
The packaging is reflective of the spirit inside - a bespoke cut crystal decanter mirrors the shape of the classic Glenfarclas bottle while each side of the hexagonal presentation box represents one of the 6 generations of the Grant family to own and manage the distillery since 1865.
So if you fancy buying me one the guys at The Green Welly have one and would happily sell it to you.
