An excellent introduction to the distillery style. Glenfarclas means Glen of the Green Grassland, and the freshness on the nose reminds me of grassland in spring. So, for me, this is the farclas aroma. In 2006 this was named the Best Sherried Whisky in the Single Malt World Cup. More recently Glenfarclas 12 Years Old won Gold at the 2007 Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival.
