This malt was drawn from two Oloroso sherry hogshead casks and is nine years old. It is the result of a partnership between online retailer and independent bottler, Master of Malt and the Glenfarclas distillery to produce a charity bottling to raise funds for Movember.
Movember is a charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Master of Malt release a special Movember whisky every year and £10 from the sale of every single bottle is donated to Movember.
Movember encourage men to raise sponsorship for growing moustaches during the month of November, so fittingly the bottle's label features a photograph of the Glenfarclas distillery workforce, taken in 1891 with many of the chaps in the photograph sporting impressive moustaches.
Review and Tasting

Clear, dark golden.
Unctuous, rich, linseed oily nubuck leather with stewed prunes and faint nutty aromas.
Rich, sherried fruity palate with toffee/fudge, a zing of Indian spice and balancing dry oak.
Long rewarding finish with pencil shavings, lightly smoked salty almonds and figs and raisins.
