Smagekommentarer
Dyb, gylden ravfarve. Fuld og fed smag af tørrede frugter, tropefrugter, mandler, nødder og citrus med en afsluttende sød vaniljeagtig røg. Smagen er flydende nektar - abrikos og honning tilsat sødmefulde orientalske krydderier og stor kompleksitet. Eftersmagen er meget lang, blød og rar, med noter af chokolade og akaciehonning.

Glenfarclas er i dag et af de eneste tilbageværende familieejede destillerier i Skotland. Destilleriet, der ligger ved floden Spey i maltwhiskyens hjemstavn, Highlands, blev grundlagt i 1836 af løjtnant Robert Hay. Jorden lå umiddelbart op til kvægopdrætteren John Grants marker, så da Robert Hay i 1865 ville sælge sine jorde for at vende tilbage til England, var det naturligt for John Grant at slå til og købe jorderne samt det tilhørende destilleri.

Dette skulle vise sig at være en rigtig god investering, og i dag, næsten 150 år efter, er Glenfarclas verdenskendt for at producere nogle af de mest imødekommende og aromatiske whiskys i Skotland.

Vandet, som bruges i destillationsprocessen, hentes i en lille kilde, der udspringer fra Benrinnes-bjergene – og netop kombinationen af det meget rene, bløde vand og den helt specielle form på de anvendte pot-stills bidrager til Glenfarclas’ unikke stil.
Netop kombinationen af det meget rene, bløde vand og den helt unikke form på potstill'ene bidrager til Glenfarclas unikke stil. Når whiskyen er færdigdestilleret, lagres den på brugte fade, der enten er hentet i USA, hvor de tidligere er blevet brugt til lagring af bourbon, eller fra Spanien, hvor de har været anvendt til modning af Fino Sherry. Whiskyen lagres efterfølgende i minimum 8 år, før den frigives til salg.

Jim Murray skriver i Lademanns Whiskybog om Glenfarclas: " Jeg håber, at deres navn når vidt og bredt - deres malt bør opleves af enhver, der søger flydende skønhed."

“My great-great grandfather, John Grant, born in 1805, purchased Glenfarclas Distillery for £511.19s.0d on the 8th of June 1865. To this day, Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky is distilled and matured at our family owned and run distillery, which thanks to the foresight of my forefathers remains independent. Creating a great malt whisky is a time-honoured process. Here in the heart of Speyside, my family has cherished the skills and traditions of fine malt whisky making, handing them down through six generations. We are proud to share our secrets with you”.

John L. S. Grant

Since 1865 Glenfarclas has been owned and managed by just one family, the Grants of Glenfarclas. On the 8th of June 1865 John Grant acquired the tenancy for the Rechlerich Farm and as part of the transaction purchased the Glenfarclas Distillery for £511.19S.0d. To this day Glenfarclas is one of only a few distilleries in Scotland to remain family owned and managed. Now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation of the family, the Grants remain committed to the vision of creating the best quality Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style.

George, son of John, is the sixth generation of the family and the company's Brand Ambassador. George joined the family business in 2000 after working for another Scotch Whisky Distiller, and the Glenfarclas distributor in Hong Kong; Fine Vintages (Far East) Ltd. George is passionate about Glenfarclas and particularly enjoys introducing whisky lovers to the older expressions of Glenfarclas, those distilled by his grandfather and watched over by his father.

Being a relatively small company you won’t find Glenfarclas in every supermarket, however the family were delighted when their commitment to quality and the traditions of the whisky trade were honoured in 2006 when Whisky Magazine named Glenfarclas 'Distiller of the Year', for 'being consistently good and staying true to its core values'
