This weekend a friend and I decided we wanted to enjoy a Glenfarclas, a whisky we had yet to try. The place where we purchase is known to be very reputable in Southern California for their expertise in all spirits. Not knowing what year of Glenfarclas to choose the two guys helping us recommended we go with the Lismore, "The Legend", 21 yrs saying it is a Glenfarclas but bottled for Lismore since Glenfarclas already had a 21 yr.... This was considered a specialty Glenfarclas, only 1800 bottles produced.
I have researched high and low for confirmation of this and have found nothing. Looking back through some threads I have read that Glenrothes were very possibly in Lismore bottles before the 21 year Lismore. Perhaps the sales reps whom I dealt with were confused by the Glenfarclas and Glenrothes?
Very confused... But certainly enjoyed the mystery bottle. It was very very good! Any thoughts?????
