product Details

Glenfarclas 1987 Quarter Cask

Quarter casks are quite unusual and there are few whiskies that have been matured wholly in these small casks, they are generally used for a brief finishing period than for an entire maturation period.  The surface area of wood for the spirit to penetrate is greater in smaller casks therefore using these quarter casks generally creates a whisky which may appear to have characteristics of whiskies older than it's age.  Very few whiskies are matured for this length of time in a quarter cask and Glenfarclas has offered us a number of examples over the years, most of which are very popular.

This particular release is from four different quarter casks, cask #3704 and #3707 were distilled on 3rd July 1987 and cask #3859 and #3860 were distilled on 11th September 1987.

Bottled after 19 years in April 2006, this is bottle 367 of 1,299.

Please note this bottle was released for the German Market.
