Glenfarclas 31 Year Old Port Cask

GlenfarclasGlenfarclas has veered away from its Sherry-led style with the launch of a 31-year-old single Port cask expression. Laid down in 1981, the whisky was bottled in July 2012 at 42.8% abv, with the resulting 480 bottles being made exclusively available to the UK and French markets.

Explaining this stylistic diversion, George Grant, Glenfarclas’ sales director and sixth generation of the Speyside distillery’s owning family, said: “The traditional Glenfarclas style is achieved using first and second fill Sherry casks for maturation.

“While we never do any kind of wood finish, we do have some casks in our warehouses that don’t quite fit in with our house style but have their own distinctive character. Some, like this Port cask, are too good to pass by.”

Port cask maturation leads, according to Grant, to a “sweet and fruity nose, which evolves into exotic notes like beeswax, cloves and ginger”. RRP £280.
