Glenfarclas 1959 Historic Reserve No.1 / The Christmas Malt

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 single malt was distilled on the 25th of December 1959, which was the last time the distillery was operational on Christmas Day. The first in The Historic Reserve series, this was bottled from sherry hogsheads #3232-3235 on 24th June 2002. This is one of only 240 bottles.
