Most Whisky distilleries are owned by large conglomerates, but Glenfarclas bucks this trend by being proudly family owned. One of the friendliest and informative tours of any distilleries I have visited thus far.
Just looking at the dark golden hues in the glass gets me licking my lips and rubbing my hands together in anticipation! Nutmeg, demerara sugar and marzipan spiral out of the glass to play on my olfactory senses, oh yes this is a great dram.
Don’t bother with the water, you simply don’t need it! Just sip and savour the fruit cake and totally balanced mix of candid fruit, dates, spice and quince.
