Glenfarclas 1968 Family Cask #534 / Release VI

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 whisky was distilled in 1968 and aged in single ex-Sherry butt #534. It was bottled on 30th June 2010 as part of the 6th release from the Family Cask range.

One of 448 bottles.
