Glenfarclas 1968 Family Cask #699 / Lindores Whisky Society 5th Anniversary

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 vintage distillery bottlings in addition to their core range age statements. In 2006, the distillery had an unbroken string of vintages dating back to 1952, and launched the Family Casks range that year, an annual release which showcases the very best of these.

This 1968 vintage Special Release was produced for the 5th anniversary of the Lindores Whisky Society, a group based in Belgium who took their name from Lindores Abbey, not far from our offices here at Whisky Auctioneer and itself now home to a whisky distillery. The group, formed in 2004 predate the distillery by over a decade!

Scoring an impressive 93 points on Whisky Fun, this is one of 35 bottles.
