Overview

Scotch doesn’t get more quintessentially Scotch than Glenfarclas Oloroso Sherry Casks 2012 Vintage.

With one of the most epic back catalogues of vintage whiskies, Glenfarclas’ annual Single Family Cask special editions are hugely sought after. 

Family-owned and wholly independent for 157 years, Glenfarclas still makes whisky the same way it always has. This is a distillery that knows what it’s doing, that doesn’t follow trends and sings to its own beautiful tune. And as they say, if it ain’t broke…

We’ve worked closely with the family to deliver Club Members a very special one-off 2012 vintage release, matured fully in Oloroso sherry casks that have been hand-picked from a single Sherry bodega in Spain. 

Those years spent in Oloroso have imparted those classic flavours into the whisky that will have Scotch lovers salivating. 

The nose is like walking into an old English sweet shop. We love the trademark Glenfarclas toffee apple set alongside sundried raisins, buttered croissant, and honeyed French oak spices. Add to that a palate of juicy blackcurrants, fruity Sherry, hazelnut fudge and almonds as well as a hint of dark chocolate as it lingers on the tongue. 

Last year’s Aberlour 14 was one of our all-time Club favourites and isn’t a million miles away from this month’s Glenfarclas. Funnily enough, the two distilleries are only 7km apart. But at 51.7% ABV, the Glenfarclas really carries the extra creaminess and juicy Sherry notes. 

We're beyond excited that the Glenfarclas Oloroso Sherry Casks 2012 Vintage has been Created Exclusively for our Members.
