Glenfarclas 105 16-Year-Old Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Whisky, 60%

No reviews

Notify me when this product is available:

In 1968, Chairman George S Grant (4th generation) selected and bottled a cask at natural strength for family and friends as a Christmas gift. The selected cask was 105° British proof which is equivalent to 60% alcohol by volume. The high strength whisky was so popular that George continued to bottle Glenfarclas at 105° proof making it what we believe to be the first official release of cask strength Scotch whisky in the world. And so the Glenfarclas 105 was born!

This special edition of 105 consists of casks that have aged beautifully whilst maintaining their incredible high strength, giving us this very limited bottling of 16-year-old Glenfarclas at 60% alcohol by volume. Carefully selected and created by Glenfarclas Distillery Manager, Callum A Fraser and Managing Director, Douglas Belford this outstanding expression embodies the renowned Glenfarclas style.

A limited edition release of 5,280 bottles globally, there are just 360 bottles of the 105 16-Year-Old available in the UK!

Tasting Note from the Distillery: 

Colour: Rich copper

Nose: Instant notes of soft butterscotch, vanilla essence, and exquisite bold spices.

Taste: Deeply complex flavours with stewed berry fruits, melted butter toffee combined with freshly baked almond biscuits.

Finish: A velvet finish with lingering notes of subtle sherry and tantalising dark chocolate that leaves you wanting more.

About the distillery

Although the distillery itself can trace its roots back to 1836, it's the purchase of Glenfarclas Distillery by John Grant in 1865 which really set the trajectory of this Speyside distillery.

160 years on and the Grant family are still at the helm, with the same vision to produce exceptional quality single malt in the traditional fashion. From the traditionally fired stills to the use of only a single cask (the finest Oloroso Sherry Oak) for the entire maturation of their whiskies, the Grant family's careful curation and dedication to authentic whisky has made Glenfarclas one of the most loved brands of whisky fans.

Thanks to its long family history, Glenfarlcas has an impressive archive of casks dating back to the 1950s which it bottles periodically at cask strength under the "Family Cask Range".

Alongside this special series lies the age-statement whiskies which are consistently excellent value and world-famous for their quality.
