Created from the contents of two Olorosso sherry hogsheads, this is a full-bodied whisky, from the festive house of Glenfarclas. Christmas pudding meets sherry with spice, hot wood and raisins – great for this time of year. Get your mince-pie early!
The nose plays a fantastic drum-roll, for a hugely satisfying dram with a deep amber colour before all these spicy, fruity flavours begin their stage act, with an encore, that provides a long and consistent finish – all good.
This is a special bottling to raise awareness and funds for Movember. As 50% of the nation prepares to grow a moustache and the other 50% look on in horror – there is no medical evidence that tasting this bottle will provide the much-needed growth, but it is certainly worth trying. It is all for a good cause – £10 from every bottle sold will be donated to Movember.
A highly satisfying whisky and excellent partner (present!) for whisky lovers.
