The Glenfarclas 25 year old is a single malt Scotch whisky from Speyside. Glenfarclas is one of the last family run distilleries left in the world and is owned by the Grant family who have been running it since 1860.
The 25 year old is simply the epitome of long aged sherried Speyside whiskey. Given an age statement of 25 years but due to its continuous ageing in sherry casks gives it a much older feel. The colour is a deep amber with dark gold highlights. On the nose it is complex, yet refined delicately peated, with fresh tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. On the palate it is full bodied and robust, the sherry and oak fight to over power one another yet neither achieve it as a powerful nutty smokiness envelops them both. The finish is intense, long lasting, dry, smoky and malty. Which leaves a beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the flavour of the 25 year old. Serve with most desserts, or enjoy as a dessert on its own.
