A cracking limited edition Glenfarclas, specially bottled for the Dutch market.
These Netherlands exclusives have a very good track record, and this is no exception.
This bottling has been aged for 15 years in a combination of refill and first fill Oloroso sherry casks in a 50/50 split.
The result is a classic Glenfarclas dram. Notes of rich toasted nuts and bitter chocolate nibs greet the drinker, followed by waves of Christmas cake character: dried fruit, dessert wine and citrus rind. Some old oak, peppery spice and caramel rounds things off nicely.
Bottled a cask strength of 52.1% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this is a luscious, decadent dram.
Just 1,800 bottles were produced.
