Whiskey Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 is the youngest, most intense and spectacular whiskey of the entire Glenfarclas Family Casks whiskey line.
Glenfarclas Family Casks whiskey is bottled only when the cask has reached the right level of maturity, full degree and single cask, the years don't count.
Whiskey Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 was distilled in 2003 and bottled in 2021.
18 years of aging in fourth fill ex sherry casks!!
Bottled at full strength of 58.1%, only 610 were made in the world!
A limited edition as per Glenfarclas tradition, but with a unique, balanced, perfect taste.
The Glenfarclas distillery was born in the thirties in the verdant Scottish valley of Speyside, whose property was purchased in 1865 by John Grant and handed down to his descendants making it, to this day, an independent reality much loved by Whiskey fans.
Of Glenfarclas the master Murray's in his famous Whiskey Bible writes: "Glenfarclas is one of the best distilled malts in the highlands, one cannot die before having tasted a Glenfarclas whiskey at least once!"
Glenfarclas comes from the Gaelic and translated means "valley of green grass".
The 18-year-old Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 is a single malt that spends its long maturation period in barrels previously used for the production of Oloroso Sherry and already used four times.
This long aging makes it wonderfully smooth, but with depth of flavour, but not overly sweet as the cask has already lost some of the sherry sugars from previous uses.
We are faced with excellence and balance, perfection!
Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 bottled in 2021 is considered among the rarest and best whiskeys in the world.
Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 aged 18 is a complex single malt, the most intriguing of the entire Glenfarclas whiskey line.
The package that contains the Glenfarclas Family Casks 2003 is beautiful!
