Recently Tasted - Glenfarclas Last of the Millennium

For a while now, I've been meaning to to sample this rather special 'Last of the Millennium' bottling from The Glenfarclas Distillery. Filled on 31st December 1999 by three generations of the Grant Family and left to rest until August 2012 when this sherry cask was bottled at 56.8% vol. It looks like a wonderful dram from the outside, but what did I think when I finally got round to tasting. Glenfarclas Last of the Millennium Tasting Notes IMG_6004 Nose: Stunning! An abundance of beautiful flavours... All the wonderful notes you'd expect from a whisky matured in a sherry cask. Toffee apple, butterscotch, sweet ginger, vanilla, sultana, light caramel, fruit cake, muscavado sugar.

Palate: Beautiful warm sweet spice, light oak, Christmas cake, orange peel and slight notes of date palm...apples, butterscotch, sweet ginger, vanilla, sultana, light caramel, fruit cake, muscovado sugar.

Finish: Warm spices, fruit cake, good long length. Overall: So glad I finally got round to tasting this wonderful dram, yet another great release from The Glenfarclas distillery...
