There are not many 40 Year Old whiskies around much more as most distilleries either were either not producing as much going back 40 years ago, or were selling off all their stocks. The whisky drinkers of the world are indeed so lucky that Glenfarclas Distillery and the Grant family that owns and craft the whisky have left these whiskies maturing on site for us to affordably buy and enjoy. A big grateful YAY! from the whisky drinkers in this Malaysian corner of the world to the Grant family.
Nose – Dense dark chocolate, antique leather, walnuts and raisins.
Palate – A sweet initial taste, orange segments, chocolate. Then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar.
Finish: The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans. Let the whisky breathe a little or add a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram.
