Glenfarclas 1978 Cask Strength Edition No.1 / Bonnie Prince Charlie
Glenfarclas is considered by many to be one of the finest distilleries in Speyside. Its direct-fired stills produce a heavy single malt that is almost exclusively matured in Jerez sherry casks. The distillery focuses on single malt over blends, and a cool microclimate around the distillery that means that their casks are particularly stingy to the "angels," resulting in an incredible depth of stock. Glenfarclas also feel they share some credit for the modern day love of cask strength whisky, introducing their acclaimed 105 proof expressions back in 1968.
This is a special release cask strength bottling of vintage Glenfarclas for the German market. Distilled in 1978 and it was bottled in 2002, this is the first in an exclusive series and features the image of the leader of the 18th century Jacobite rebellions, Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie).
One of 1200.
