Glenfarclas is an independently owned distillery in Speyside whose whiskies are in the traditional Speyside style with a heavy sherry influence. Glenfarclas means valley of the green grass, and it is truly in a peaceful, beautiful location.
The Glenfarclas 10 is one of my favorite "weekend away whiskies" because I can pick up a half bottle in duty free on my way out of town.
Today, I have my eye on one with a bit more depth for this special occasion.
Color: rich dark gold
Aroma: sweet toffee, marzipan, fruit and nuts
Taste: cinnamon, clove, lush, Christmas pudding in a glass
Pairs well with truffles and petits fours or just on its own.
