The Family Casks are a unique collection of the best single casks from the distillery's warehouses. Launched in 2007, the collection initially comprised 43 single cask bottlings, with one cask from every year from 1952 to 1994. It is the Grant Familys' intention to continue to offer as wide a range of consecutive vintage dated single casks as possible, hence since 2007 there have been seven further releases, to replace casks which have sold out, and to extend the range to include 1996. The Family Casks are bottled at cask strength and natural colour, allowing you to explore the subtle differences between casks and the history of family owned Glenfarclas.
Tasting Notes: George S Grant:
Color: Light straw gold in colour.
Nose: Lovely fresh vanilla on the nose. Carmel and lightly malty.
Taste: A very smooth whisky, a creme brulee from start to finish, vanilla, light blueberries and blackberries, not overly sweet but a wonderful whisky.
Finish: Long delicate finish, no water required in this one.
