Staff Pick Notes

Here's the skinny on Glenfarclas. Ownership: Independently owned by the Grant family for over 180 years. Location: One mile from the River Spey. Ingredients: Barley, water, yeast. Water Source: Pure spring water from Ben Rinnes ("ben" means mountain). Distillation: Double distilled in direct-flame-fired pot stills. Barrel Regimen: 100% Oloroso Sherry casks, most of which come from the same Sherry bodega. Flavor Profile: Full and rich with notes of baked apples, ginger, malt. and balanced oak. The Oloroso casks add another layer of nutty and spicy complexity. I double dare you to pair it with a coffee cake or blueberry muffin... Who doesn't love a versatile single malt?!
