Proof66 Notes

This is the Glenfarclas 12yr scotch and is considered an "excellent introduction" to the distillery style.

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.

A very nice Highland malt is Glenfarclas 12. Deeply caramel colored, easily accommodating nose and arrival, priced similarly and comparable to The Macallan 12. 4.1/5.0

Nosing this, I get minty grape syrup over vanilla ice cream (thanks Murray), but there's also light citrus and something nutty. On the palate, you can tell it's a sherried scotch, but it's very tame. It's more sweet and gentle than dry and spicy. The aromas and flavors of this 12YR are not very clear or complex, but they're rich and focused. Good balance overall. No award-winning qualities here, but it simply appeals to my taste. That's why I'm giving it 5 stars. It's a solid scotch that will always have a place in my bar.
