It is rare to encounter a truly world class dram, let alone two in the same gift set!
These delicious Speyside whiskies are made at Glenfarclas distillery, well known for its high quality, well aged sherried spirits. Certainly, this bottlings maintain this reputation: a delightful 25 year old, and a miniature of a truly astounding 40 year old.
The 25 year old offers up notes of rich dark sherry, leather, dried fruit, classic Glenfarclas Christmas cask character, overripe bananas, toasted malt, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, orange rind and oak.
If this bottling is one of the quintessential Glenfarclas sherry bombs, then the 40 year old takes things even further. With its incredible age comes nearly unparalleled depth and complexity, with notes of chocolate orange, burnt sugar, walnuts, marzipan, dark sherry, sweet dried fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, leather, old oak, wine tannins and pot-pourri.
A magnificent set, presented in a handsome blue presentation box – this would make the ultimate gift for any whisky lover.
