Sherry Oak

Glenfarclas 40 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

There aren’t many 40-year-old Scotches out there. This one makes its age known with a deep nut-brown color and a modest booziness on the nose, in addition to deep toffee, cocoa and hazelnut aromas. Oak is the dominant flavor, finishing with dry cocoa and leather accents. Water helps tease out additional orange peel, nutmeg and toasted coconut tones. Velvety feel.Glenfarclas has a proven track record for aging very well. I’ve enjoyed some amazing 25 and 30 year old expressions, in addition to some older vintage offerings. Does this new 40 year old follow suit?

White Oak Akashi Grain Whiskey

This is a whisky blended in the Scotch tradition and with Japanese precision. The malt is lightly peated and vatting is mostly ex-bourbon, balanced by the distillery’s unique variety of barrels. The nose is very fruity with apricots and dried fruits and a shy note of honey. Aged in mostly ex-bourbon barrels and finished in sherry cask, the whisky is kin to bourbon with hints of malt, soft and approachable with notes of black cherry and vanilla, balanced on the palate with a silky sweet finish.
