Glenfarclas 15 Year Old
With greater complexity than our younger whiskies, this is a great whisky drinker’s whisky. We bottle this at 46% simply because my grandfather preferred it at this strength. It’s still a family favourite.
Described as a great whisky drinker’s whisky, this 15 year old Glenfarclas from the family-run distillery is bottled at 46% abv simply because the owner’s grandfather preferred it that way.
The nose is complex with sherry, peat, butterscotch and a hint of dried fruit. The palate delivers a full-bodied well-balanced sweetness with malty tones and peaty flavours. The finish is long and satisfying with sweet and smoky aspects coming through.
In his 2007 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray gave Glenfarclas 15 Years Old a score of 95/100, one of the highest scores he has awarded.
