Glenfarclas 17 Year Old The Royal Oak Dufftown

Glenfarclas is considered by many to be one of the finest distilleries in Speyside. It has been in the hands of the Grant family since 1865, making it one of the oldest family-owned distillers in Scotland. Its direct-fired stills produce a heavy single malt that is almost exclusively matured in Jerez sherry casks. The distillery focuses on single malt over blends, and a cool microclimate around the distillery that means that their casks are particularly stingy to the "angels," resulting in an incredible depth of stock.
