Glenfarclas 12 Years Old 40% Vol.

Glenfarclas 12 Years er en glimrende introduktion til Glenfarclas stilen. Glenfarclas betyder "Dalen med det grønne græs", og netop denne friskhed finder man i denne 12 årige Glenfarclas.
Glenfarclas 12 Years blev i 2006 i Singlemalt World Cup kåret til bedste sherrylagrede whisky og i hhv. 2007 og 2008 kåret til bedste whisky på Stockholm Whisky & Beer Festival.

Smagekommentarer: Farve som en gylden kornmark. Frisk og sprød duft med letkrydret sødme tilsat et strejf af appelsin. Fyldig smag med noter af tørret frugt, nyt træ og let sød røg, der munder ud i en overrraskende lang afslutning med en elegant krydrethed.

Colour: Vibrant amber-gold.
Nose: Fresh and beautifully light, sherried fruit combined with a tempting spicy sweetness and a hint of sappy oak.
Flavour: Full bodied, delightful sherried fruit, with oak, a hint of peat and delicious sweet sensations.
Finish: Long and flavoursome, with a lingering spiceness.

Comment: An excellent introduction to the distillery style. Glenfarclas means Glen of the Green Grassland, and the freshness on the nose reminds me of grassland in spring. So, for me, this is the ‘farclas’ aroma. In 2006 this was named the ‘Best Sherried Whisky’ in the Single Malt World Cup. More recently Glenfarclas 12 Years Old won Gold at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival in 2007 and again in 2008.

Glenfarclas er i dag et af de eneste tilbageværende familieejede destillerier i Skotland. Destilleriet, der ligger ved floden Spey i maltwhiskyens hjemstavn, Highlands, blev grundlagt i 1836 af løjtnant Robert Hay. Jorden lå umiddelbart op til kvægopdrætteren John Grants marker, så da Robert Hay i 1865 ville sælge sine jorde for at vende tilbage til England, var det naturligt for John Grant at slå til og købe jorderne samt det tilhørende destilleri.

Dette skulle vise sig at være en rigtig god investering, og i dag, næsten 150 år efter, er Glenfarclas verdenskendt for at producere nogle af de mest imødekommende og aromatiske whiskys i Skotland.

Vandet, som bruges i destillationsprocessen, hentes i en lille kilde, der udspringer fra Benrinnes-bjergene – og netop kombinationen af det meget rene, bløde vand og den helt specielle form på de anvendte pot-stills bidrager til Glenfarclas’ unikke stil.
Netop kombinationen af det meget rene, bløde vand og den helt unikke form på potstill'ene bidrager til Glenfarclas unikke stil. Når whiskyen er færdigdestilleret, lagres den på brugte fade, der enten er hentet i USA, hvor de tidligere er blevet brugt til lagring af bourbon, eller fra Spanien, hvor de har været anvendt til modning af Fino Sherry. Whiskyen lagres efterfølgende i minimum 8 år, før den frigives til salg.

Jim Murray skriver i Lademanns Whiskybog om Glenfarclas: " Jeg håber, at deres navn når vidt og bredt - deres malt bør opleves af enhver, der søger flydende skønhed."

“My great-great grandfather, John Grant, born in 1805, purchased Glenfarclas Distillery for £511.19s.0d on the 8th of June 1865. To this day, Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky is distilled and matured at our family owned and run distillery, which thanks to the foresight of my forefathers remains independent. Creating a great malt whisky is a time-honoured process. Here in the heart of Speyside, my family has cherished the skills and traditions of fine malt whisky making, handing them down through six generations. We are proud to share our secrets with you”.
