Glenfarclas 8 Year Old 1970s / WARI Charity Lot
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.
A rarely-seen 8 year old, this was bottled in the 1970s.
Whisky Auctioneer is delighted to have partnered with the Whisky and Rum Investors to hold a spotlight charity auction. The online group hosted an appeal for donations to raise funds for those affected by the devastating earthquakes in Turkey & Syria. They would like to extend their gratitude to the extended whisky community for supporting this initiative.
This lot has been generously donated via their online appeal and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal.
