Glenfarclas 12 Year Old from 1990s (1L, 43%)
One of the smart looking old labels 1 litre bottle of iconic whisky offering more sherry character than it's 10 year old counterpart, this is a popular expression from this family owned Speyside distillery. The 12 year old is typical available in mainland Europe, rather than in the UK.
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.
