Glenfarclas is one of those rare breed of distilleries that has managed to maintain its independence as a (still) family-owned affair in spite of today’s hyper-competitive climate. It has garnered quite a reputation for its traditional, predominantly sherried, Speyside style whisky – an uncommon occurrence these days, owing much to the considerably higher expense of acquiring an ex-sherry cask for maturation.
A vertical tasting is a progressive way of tasting spirits from one producer, often in ascending order of age, to give you a better understanding of the different characteristics of the spirit as it matures.
This coming Saturday, 6 September 2014, City Nomads and La Maison du Whisky are putting together a whisky masterclass conducted by whisky expert Ben Curtis, who will take participants on a ‘vertical tasting’. You’ll have a chance to try most of Glenfarclas’ core range of whiskies, namely the 10YO, the 15YO, 17YO, and the 21YO. There will only be two sessions (10 seats each), so book early to avoid disappointment. You can do so at the City Nomads event page here.
