Glenfarclas 1992 Murray McDavid 16 Year Old / Fèis Isle 2013 Bin-End

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 whisky was distilled in 1992 and aged for 16 years before being bottled at the Bruichladdich distillery by Murray McDavid.

Murray McDavid were founded in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin and ex-Springbank distillery Director, Gordon Wright. The company bought re-opened Bruichladdich distillery in December 2000, hiring Jim McEwan as Master Distiller. The company was purchased by Remy Cointreau in 2012, with the Murray McDavid brand eventually returning to Scottish hands the following year. Murray McDavid is famed for coining the term "ACE-ing" (additional cask enhancement) in relation to their cask finishing process, something they continue to use to great effect to this day.

This was sold at the 2013 Fèis Isle as a "Bin-End" bottle.

A Bin -End is one of the last remain bottles from a single release. This is one of only 5 bottles.
