GLENFARCLAS 511.19 Family Reserve

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 19779

The Grant family, owners of the Glenfarclas distillery, have released a particularly special new bottling. 511.19 Family Reserve celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Grant family’s purchase of the Glenfarclas distillery. On 8 June 1865, John Grant bought the distillery for just £511.19s.0d. A copy of the original purchase deed is included with every bottle, along with a note from George Grant explaining the whisky’s importance for the Grant family. It is a blend of 3 casks from between 1970 and 2000, with a focus on First Fill Sherry Butts, with 2 Sherry Butts and 1 Hogshead, that proudly embody the profile of whiskies from the distillery.

A rich, gentle sherry with notes of caramel syrup and freshly toasted bread. The nose announces fresh fruit married with heather honey and the finish is sweet and dry with luscious notes of fruit, hazelnut and milk chocolate. A delightful whisky!

Tasting note

  • Nose : Le nez annonce des fruits frais mariés au miel de bruyère.
  • Palate : Un Sherry doux et riche, aux notes de sirop de caramel et de pain fraichement grillé.
  • Overall : La finale s’avère douce et sèche, avec de jolies notes de fruits, de noisettes et de chocolat au lait. Un whisky très agréable !
The brand

The brand

An independent distillery since the 19th century, Glenfarclas can claim to produce one of the most traditional single malts in the world. The same type of stills have been used here since 1836; its single malts are aged predominantly in ex-sherry casks, even though these cost ten times more than their American counterparts; running the distillery requires at least 13 people, with the manipulation of its 52,000 casks being performed entirely by hand. The Family Casks collection, the perfect illustration of this long tradition, brings together 43 successive vintage bottlings dating from 1952 to 1994, each one a single cask bottled at cask strength.
