Glenfarclas 10 Years Old NV

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1836 tenant farmer Robert Hay was granted a licence to produce whisky at the Glenfarclas Distillery. After his death, John Grant, a prominent cattle breeder looking for an ideal halfway staging post between his farm and market, took an interest in the abandoned distillery and property. In 1865 a tenancy agreement was negotiated. John Grant died 24 years later, leaving his son George to run both the farm and the distillery; sadly, George passed away not long afterwards, and his two eldest children, John and George, were appointed to take care of the business. In the 1890’s John and George formed the Glenfarclas-Glenlivet Distillery Company with Pattisons of Leith. However, the troublesome partnership eventually dissolved, and they formed their own company, J. & G. Grant. By 1912 Glenfarclas’ reputation was well-established; even a competitor said, “of all the whiskies, malt is king, of all the kings, Glenfarclas reigns supreme”-a sentiment the family still holds close to their hearts. Sherry-sweet, malty tones on the nose with a touch of honey and vanilla. Light malt and smoky on the palate with some spice followed by notable cinnamon and hints of dried fruit; smooth delicate finish.
