Everyone should own a 50 year old whisky, just because, you know, 50-year-old whisky! And more specifically: they should own this Glenfarclas 50 Years Old, because it doesn’t get much better. Only 937 bottles were released when it came out in 2015. It comes in a nice, black box that doesn’t scream luxury. Exactly how we like it. Luxury is an expression, not a box. Glenfarclas is one of the few family owned distilleries left in Scotland. It is currently owned by the fifth generation. This Glenfarclas 50 Years Old is the third release in the distillery’s Family Series that currently has seen six releases, of which only the second one (a 1956 vintage) was a tiny bit older.
