Description

bottle of Glenfarclas 1971 The Family Casks VII Release. This was distilled in 1971, matured in a single sherry butt, and bottled on 26 May 2011.

This is one of 468 bottles; it was bottled from cask number 150.

Glenfarclas is one of the oldest distilleries in Speyside, and since it was purchased by John Grant in 1865 for £512, it has remained under the Grant family's ownership. Known for its masterful use of European oak sherry casks and direct-fired stills, the distillery was the first to release a cask strength single malt (Glenfarclas 105° was released in 1968), and among the first to open a visitor centre in 1973. Though the distillery does supply blenders, it has always held a significant portion of its output for single malt bottlings, resulting in Glenfarclas retaining more significant volumes of aged stocks than most distilleries.
