Whisky bottles were standardised at 70cl across Europe back in 1990, and ever since then our North American cousins (and our chums down in South Africa) have been pointing at the extra couple of shots their 75cl bottles get them. For September, we’re firing a shot across their collective bow, with our Malt of the Month deal saving you money on litre bottles of Glenfarclas 12 Year Old – that’s a whole extra five drams than you’ll get from a 75cl bottle. Take that, America!
Nose: Fresh and beautifully light, sherried fruit combined with a tempting spicy sweetness and a hint of sappy oak.
Palate: Full bodied, delightful sherried fruit, with oak, a hint of peat and delicious sweet sensations.
Finish: Long and flavoursome, with a lingering spiceness.
For the whole of September, we’ve knocked £12 off our usual selling price, and are offering one-litre bottles of Glenfarclas 12yo for £37.95, the equivalent of £26.57 for a regular 70cl bottle, which is a stonking saving. The 12 Year Old is a great place to start with Glenfarclas, marrying sweet sherry with their underlying fruity spirit – it’s not a sherry monster like some of the older drams, but instead shows off a more finessed side to the distillery character.
Head on over to our Malt of the Month page to learn more, and grab a bottle before the end of September to get the offer.
