Glenfarclas 1982 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
One of the Glenfarclas Family Cask bottlings, featuring a single malt Scotch whisky distilled in 1982 and matured in a plain hogshead cask until July 2014. It was bottled as part of their Autumn 2014 release, with just 230 bottles produced.
This is from the year Glenfarclas experimented with steam heating the stills, instead of using direct fire. The lightest in color of this quintet, it is invitingly fresh at first, but also has a sugar-y sweetness to it, as well as earthy and tobacco-esque notes. Very interesting on the palate, some menthol notes, as well as tobacco, white pepper and cumin. A subtle touch of oak. Unconventional, but highly enjoyable.
