Only a few distilleries in Scotland are still private owned. The Speyside distillery Glenfarclas is one of them. Maybe it’s the best known among them and maybe it’s one of the most successful family owned distilleries in Scotland ever. The range of single malts is wide and lasts from 10 year old whiskies to a 40 year old release. Glenfarclas whisky is full bodied, presents aromas of dried fruits, sherry, honeycomb, butterscotch, light peat, nuts, and marzipan.
With their famous Glenfarclas 105 they bottle a single malt with 60% ABV which is cask strength although it’s no single cask release. There is hardly another distillery that has as much high quality and old whiskies in its warehouses as Glenfarclas.
