Superb single malt from the Glenfarclas distillery, aged for 30 years. Three decades of maturation have resulted in a fantastically full-bodied, satisfyingly Sherried and all-around awesome flavour profile. Now presented with a box designed as an homage to the unmistakable red door of the Glenfarclas warehouse.
Released as a Travel Retail exclusive alongside two other Glenfiddich Cask Collection bottlings, the Reserve Cask focusses on the Sherried side of this Speyside distillery's output. This rich, handsomely sweet expression is matured in Spanish Sherry casks before being married in a Solera vat.
Glenfiddich's Travel Retail Cask Collection range has had a rather handsome redesign! The whisky within remains spectacular - this Speyside single malt is made with casks specially selected by malt master Brian Kinsman, then married in a Solera system.
A well-balanced and nuanced Mortlach, selected and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of the Distillery Labels range. Rather than the full-on sherry monsters that Mortlach is better known for, this is a more complex take, with restrained sherry-cask notes and lots of Mortlach's rich and malty character. If you're a sherry fan, don't worry: there's still lots of rich fruit and raisins here, tempered by a touch of sultana and vanilla.
