Glenfarclas launches 18 Years Old for Travel Retail

Glenfarclas 18.JPG
Speyside January 2013; Recognising an opportunity for a Travel Retail exclusive version of Glenfarclas, J. & G. Grant are proud to release a new expression of their single malt; Glenfarclas 18 Years Old.

As can be expected from family owned Glenfarclas, this whisky is heavily sherried, and bottled at natural colour. On the nose this whisky has fresh sweet aromas of honeycomb and citrus notes. This is followed on the taste with flavours of creamy fudge, almonds and dried fruits. The 18 Years Old has a long lasting, smooth and satisfying finish, and is sure to please single malt lovers.

Glenfarclas 18 Years Old is presented in a striking red and copper foil tube designed to stand out on shelf and appeal particularly to gift buyers. The individual gift tubes are subtly marked ‘Exclusive to Travel Retail’, a message which is more prominently displayed on the outer case. Glenfarclas 18 Years Old will only be available in 1 litre format.

Appropriately the Glenfarclas 18 Years Old will be launched at the Cinderella Whisky Fair, the world’s largest floating whisky festival. Organised by Viking Line, the show takes place on board the M/S Cinderella as the ship cruises on the Baltic Sea.

I've contacted Glenfarclas for you and have been informed that they are launching with Viking Line but plan to have a wider distribution soon.

The RRP is GBP 75.00

I hope you get a chance to have a taste!
