Proof66 Notes

Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength scotch is part of the trend for bottling straight from the barrel without benefit of blending down with water. The bottling proof is not 105 but rather 120 (60% alcohol) vs the typical bottling strength of around 86 (or 43% alcohol). The benefit is that the consumer gets decide the drinking strength and how much to blend down (few would argue that it shouldn't be watered down at all). Many believe this makes the whisky go further and is a better value buy. It has no age statement so it's hard to say what sort of oak presence is in the bottle. It is said to hold "all the flavours of Glenfarcas in one glass." They suggest, wryly, to add a little water to "fully explore its great depth" (which we suppose is Scottish for, stay conscious long enough to taste it).

Glenfarclas Distillery was founded in 1846 by Robert Hay and was later sold in 1865 to John Grant and the Grant family owns and operates the distillery to this day for a cool 511.19 pounds. It uses specially designed copper pot stills that are heated directly by fire with water from local snowmelt. Glenfarclas can be translated as "Glen of the Green Grassland" according to "The Whisky Guide."
