Glenfarclas 1976 40 Year Old The Family Collector Series Release VI

To celebrate the 40th birthday of George S. Grant, Sales Director and 6th generation of the family Glenfarclas. They have released the final limited edition to the Family Collector Series, the Glenfarclas 1976 40 year old whisky VI.

  • Rich aromas of sherry-soaked dried fruits dominate the senses
  • The sweetness in this Glenfarclas expression is exceptionally pronounced for a single malt
  • Resembling the sweetness found in a distinctive single cask bourbon
  • Prepare for an explosion of flavours with an abundance of dried fruits, including luscious sultanas and raisins, complemented by hints of redcurrant and plum jam
  • A subtle peppery spice emerges, accompanied by a touch of oak, tempering the overall sweetness slightly
  • The journey concludes with a touch of muscovado sugar, as the lingering interplay of pepper and wood extends into a relatively long-lasting finish, leaving a memorable impression on the palate

Matured in the finest Sherry Casks, this bottling produced a total of 1,500 bottles. This Scottish whisky comes in a superb Glenfarclas luxury gift case.

Born in 1976, George takes great pleasure in sharing the last of the 1976 Glenfarclas casks with you. He is passionate about Glenfarclas and particularly enjoys introducing whisky lovers to these older expressions. Those distilled by his grandfather and watched over by his father.

He comments 'The 1970s was a key time period in Glenfarclas history as this is when my grandfather decided to push sales of Glenfarclas single malt scotch. Combined with my father's efforts in appointing distributors around the world'.

Today the 5th & 6th generations of the Grant family can enjoy the fruits of their labour. Thus completing the Family Collector Series with the fantastic Glenfarclas 1976 40 years old whisky VI.

Family owned steeped in tradition

In 1865, Glenfarclas distillery, nestled in the heart of Speyside, was purchased by a cattle breeder by the name of John Grant. Today, the Glenfarclas spirit still lives strong and continues in family ownership under the direction of 5th generation owner, John Grant.

Glenfarclas means ‘Valley of the Green Grassland’ and the spring water, which ensures the verdant green grass, is essential to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt Whisky. It bubbles up, crystal clear, from the underlying granite on the slopes of the Speyside mountain, Ben Rinnes, to supply the distillery below.

There it is combined with the finest malted barley, twice distilled in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills and only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol are collected to be filled into the finest Spanish Sherry oak casks and lie maturing over many years.

Times may have changed, but it’s what has stayed the same that makes Glenfarclas unique: the six generations of Grant family pride and the revered quality of their famous Single Malt Whisky.
