    Producers tasting notes by George S. Grant (Brand Ambassador):

    A rich autumn sunrise.

    Initially a spicy aroma, then big heavy fruits, lovely sweet sherry emanating from the edges. Amazing nose for a 59 year old whisky.

    Silky smooth, light smokiness balanced with sweet golden syrup. The flavours swirl around your mouth, like a mini tornado bombarding your senses.

    Fresh acorns to fully mature oak, fresh oak to light tannins.

    This whisky has everything to offer. The balance is quite sublime for such an old whisky.
    Bottled 2013.

    with 59 years of age, this will be the oldest Family Casks bottling ever from Glenfarclas. The 60 year old distilled in 1953 will be bottled later in 2013 as a super exclusive 60 year old OB sitting above the Family Casks (also pricewise).

    This is release A13 (Autumn 2013), the 11th release of the Family Casks
