Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength Scotch 60% ABV 120 Proof
Glenfarclas 105 is a superb cask strength whisky, with a
history that can be traced to 1968. When the original incarnation was released
that year, Glenfarclas became the first distillery to release a barrel proof
single malt whisky.
The bottling was eventually re-named to 105, referring to
its alcohol content in British Proof, which equates now to 60% ABV.
The 105 doesn't carry an age statement presently, making
it rare among Glenfarclas bottlings. Although, there are suggestions that it is
matured for 8-10 years in a combination of both ex-sherry and ex-bourbon
Drying, assertive and richly spiced, the 105 makes for a
superb dram, one the Malt Maniacs rated as the best “Bang for your buck” whisky
in 2004. Add a drop of water if you please to explore its depth - and don't be
put off by that ABV, there's plenty of flavour here to enjoy.
