Glenfarclas �511.19s.0d Family Reserve 70cl
The ï¿½511.19s.0d Family Reserve, a non-chill filtered bottling at 43%, is a vatting of predominantly first fill sherry butts which proudly embodies the distillery's sherry profile, bringing together all the character of this great spirit across the generations. Sweet and rich sherry, like a toffee syrup over a freshly toasted French baguette, the nose promises fresh fruit smothered in heather honey, ending almost like a sweet port. Then a dry yet sweet taste, a lovely balance of fruit, light nuttiness and milk chocolate develop, followed by a very palatable long and easy finish. In June 2015 John and George Grant introduce the new £511.19s.0d Family Reserve in celebration of the 150th anniversary of when the family officially brought the Glenfarclas distillery. To mark this occasion in the Grant family history, John and George Grant filled ten sherry butss and ten sherry hogshead casks to lay down for the future generations. The beauty of independence is that we have total control over the quality and character of our whisky, and with this control we can personally choose what we want the brand to represent, says George Grant, 6th generation of the family. A copy of the original bill of sale for the the Glenfarclas distillery is included with each bottle as well an explanation from George Grand as to why this family reserve is so significant.
