1961 Glenfarclas ($1200) ☺☺☺☺☺ 

This is the first whisky I have reviwed on what is strictly a wine site. In this case however the experience was so memorable that I thought I would share it with you. This Single Malt was put into a cask in 1961 then bottled in 2007 so strictly speaking is a 46 year old Malt. The colour was dark brown having leeched all the colour from the sherry cask. The inital nose of one of toffee apples and sherry christmas cake fruit. On the palate it is spicy vanilla and a great long finish. Thanks to Richard Fox for sharing this great bottle with us.
