Speyside distillery […]

After the last relation from a visit to the Talisker Distillery, today lets move from the Isle of Skye to the Speyside, to Ballindalloch - home of the Glenfarclas Distillery. It was founded in 1836, and since 1865 remains in the hands of the Grant family. A typical independent distillery for generations owned by the same family. A characteristic feature of single malt derived from the company is aging whisky primarily in sherry casks. The beautiful example of Glenfarclas is vintage 1953, 58 years old. Also more accessible versions e.g. 12 years old or 21 years old are very nice. When you will be near sometime it is worth to walk in. Everything is well organized, the staff is very friendly and with great knowledge. Here are some photos from the distillery.

    8 years old

    I have a bottle of Glenfarclas The Private Reserve 2003 from February and Ive tasted it several times already to make sure what do I feel. Single malt was distilled in 2003 and bottled in November 2011, with 46% ABV, unchillfiltered. The color may be a natural, but I dont have such an information. To create this batch they used casks No: 9, 10, 11, 1875 and 1876. It doesnt say a lot, though the data is given on the bottle. I dont know what kind of casks we are dealing with, but after...

    the youngest Glenfarclas on the blog

    After recent post of Glenfarclas 21 years old, today I have in my hand 12 year old single malt from this distillery. [caption id=attachment_2160 align=alignnone width=801] Glenfarclas 12 years old[/caption] Alcohol content 43% ABV.

    typical distillery representative

    Adventure on the blog with Glenfarclas started with a really high level, because of whisky distilled in 1953 and maturing for 58 years (Glenfarclas 1953, 58 years old). Today I have here, younger 21 years old, edition. The alcohol content is 43% ABV, but it is chillfiltered and probably caramel coloured.
