Glenfarclas Family Cask 1984 (Cask #6030), 51%

Price: $392 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Dave Broom

A refill hogshead this time, which when combined with its (relative) youth throws the distillery character into even greater focus. Positively light to start with, a green edge to the dry grass seen in the 1970s and more of the fruity notes hinted at in the 1982. All the time, though, it is anchored by meaty earthiness and that distinctive burnt note. The finish is a little short, but all in all a very appetizing example. £250
