    Glenfarclas Family Cask 1982 Bottling Note

    This Family Cask was a refill sherry hogshead (cask 2213), distilled in 1982. This whisky is a spicy, rich Glenfarclas, bottled on the 20th November 2006 as part of an outturn of 258 bottles.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Herbal, oaky vanilla, toffee, hay, rooty.

    Palate: Rich, spicy, creamy, oak sweetness. Barley.

    Finish: Nutty, herbal, creamy, toffee.

    **********

    Light on the eye, with a nose of soft leather.
     
    A rich spicy floral taste associated with a refill cask. After the initial thrive there is a slight sweet vanilla flavour at the back of your throat. 

    I recommend adding a couple of drops of water to the 1982. This really lets it come alive, releasing more floral and vanilla notes, with some light nuttiness.

    An elegant soft finish. 
    Bottled 2006.
