Glenfarclas 10 Year Old Cask Strength MoM

Glorious Glenfarclas single malt, and it's got our name on it! This is a bespoke bottling from the legendary Speyside-based distillery, released exclusively for Master of Malt. Matured for ten years in oloroso sherry casks, it's bottled up at a robust 55% ABV. Heavily sherried with generous layers of fruitcake and toffee, the higher strength brings a bolder richly mouthcoating profile, with a noticeably lengthier finish than the classic Glenfarclas 10 Year Old.

Nose: Sweet barley water and vanilla fudge open the way, with crisp green apples and sherry-soaked stone fruits.

Palate: A punchy start leads to robust, mouthcoating layers of dense, aged fruitcake, sticky toffee pudding, and prunes.

Finish: Buttery biscuits and baking spices linger, with long-lasting helpings of cooked orchard fruits, soaked sultanas, and sherried oak.
