I think they, SMWS, might still also have a 36y now, for 100£, that's a damn good price!!!

Damn nice whisky as well Di Blasi , had one on my last visit .
Edit .....Found my notes
Current Glenfarclas on the list (1.135 , 36yo , 54.7 , Nov 1970) , A very deep amber , this was the most sherried Farclas i’ve had off the society , huge Christmas cake on the nose ( Spices , dried fruits etc) . Slightly burnt Treacle Toffee and spices on the palate with a long , smooth spicy finish . A wee bit too sherried for my liking but still a cracking dram , with a wee drop of water the slight burnt taste vanished

I should have at least tasted it when I was there, too bad I didn't! And picked up a bottle, something this special and good!

I guess I'll have to open a bottle and share some thoughts with you. About a month ago I purchased the Scott's Glenfarclas 1965 bottled in 2005 at 48.5%.

Here's to hoping that it lives up to its brethren.

One thing that's great about this distillery is that they really see to know how to produce aged whiskies that aren't completely swamped by woodiness.

Absolutely! Except the 105. There's cheaper surgical spirit on the market ;)

When's the last time you had the 105 Mustardhead?? That 105 is so damn good and surprisingly smooth for that strength! You should really give it another try if it's been awhile, especially now, the batch is even better!

Spent the evening with the 21 yr last night. I put my review up on the SMWDB you can jump to it from the image. Appologies for jumping out of the site but don't click if you don't want to go!

Yes, the 21y is fantastic! Very subtle and soft and a whisky to spend extra time with. Did you all celebrate Glenfarclas Distilleries 142y anniversary Friday??
