Glenfarclas 31 Year Old Single Port Cask

11th March  2013
Glenfarclas release a unique 31 year old Port Cask matured expression.

In a departure from their typical heavily sherried style that you will all be familiar with, Glenfarclas have released a single cask limited edition whisky which has been 100% matured for 31 years in a Port Cask. This unique Port Cask matured Glenfarclas was distilled and laid down in 1981 and bottled in July 2012 at 42.8% ABV. The cask yielded only 480 bottles which will be made available exclusively to the UK and French markets.

George Grant, 6th generation of the owning family, and the companyís Director of Sales explained; "The traditional Glenfarclas style is achieved using predominantly first and second fill sherry casks for maturation. While we never do any kind of wood finish, we do have some casks in our warehouses which donít quite fit in with our typical house style but have their own distinctive character. Some though, like this exceptional Port Cask, are just too good to pass by ! "

Following on from the success of the 43 year old Cognac Cask Glenfarclas, released last year, the 31 year old Port Cask is sure to intrigue and delight enthusiasts and fans seeking a different personality to their favourite malt.

The recommended retail price of Glenfarclas 31 year old Port Cask is £280 a bottle.
