Glenfarclas The Family Cask 1996-2011 Cask 1306 is a special edition of Glenfarclas’ highly-acclaimed Family Casks series. The whisky was selected during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2011 by a panel of 30 Glenfarclas fans, together with George Grant. The winning cask was Sherry Butt #1306, with delicious notes of roasted chestnuts, toffee chocolate and dried apricots. It was distilled in 1996 and bottled on 26 May 2011 at 55.6%. The Family Casks range was first released in 2007 to showcase Glenfarclas’ heritage, being one of the few distilleries in Scotland that is still in the hands of the original family. Each whisky in the series is a single cask malt bottled at cask strength, with vintages going all the way back to 1952. Glenfarclas The Family Casks bottles make for perfect anniversary gifts, because what better present to receive on your birthday than a superb single malt that was distilled in your birth year? Only 593 bottles of Glenfarclas The Family Cask 1996-2011 Cask 1306 have been released.
