This 2013 Speciality Drinks bottling of a single cask Glenfarclas distilled in 1953 and aged in a first-fill sherry butt for 60 years celebrates the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Just 60 specially commissioned crystal decanters were produced and filled at natural strength without filtration

Tasting Notes

Sampled on 10/09/2013

Appearance: Clear, mid to deep golden amber.
Aroma: Christmas cake, stewed fruit, raisins and sultanas with crushed mint leaves with almond, sandalwood, thyme spice and marzipan. Faint sulphur.
Taste: Rich honeyed sherry balanced by oaky tannins, coal tar, mocha coffee and Christmasy spice. Fabulously fruity for a malt of this age with orange zest, berries and tropical fruit.
Aftertaste: Earthy tar, toasty oak and lingering mince pie spice. A most Christmasy of malts.
