105 proof was the old measure of alcohol content. The whiskey was mixed with gunpowder. Based on the explosive strength of the mixture, it was possible to calculate the alcohol content. The then named Glenfarclas 105 matured exclusively in sherry casks...
This exceptional single malt is among the cheapest of all 21-year-old malt whiskeys. It contains more smoke than other Glenfarclas. But in comparison only a subtle touch. The sherry taste takes a back seat in favor of oak, vanilla and fruits.
This 18-year-old expression from Glenfarclas was created for the travel value market. It's now a direct competitor for the 17-year-old Glenfarclas from the standard range. A complex single malt with lots of sherry.
The character of this malts is sweetish and delicately smoky with a hefty onion. It softens with water and the sherry unfolds. There is some smoke in the taste. The finish is medium long. In metal tin!
