Glenfarclas 60 Year old

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.

The impressive cask stock in the Glenfarclas warehouses means there has been a great output of well-aged core range and limited edition age statements. This is a stunning 60 year old, presented in a crystal decanter with a hexagonal display case representing the six generation of the Grant family that have managed the Distillery. 

Only 360 bottles of this were produced, officially launched on the 3rd of April 2014 at the Nth Whisky Show in Las Vegas and offering a unique opportunity to acquire one of the oldest bottles ever released by this iconic distillery.

Aged in first fill sherry butt #1672.
