So regular readers and subscribers will know that Whisky & Wisdom recently released its own private bottling of Glenfarclas. A 9yo single-cask bottling from a European oak sherry butt, to be specific. If you missed the original release details and the story behind the bottling, you can read it all here.
Anyway, many people no doubt saw this and may have been interested in acquiring a bottle – but I know what you’re thinking: “Sure, he’s telling us it’s a great whisky, but how much weight or credit can you give to a whisky blog that’s spruiking its own bottling? He’s obviously biased!” Yes, that’s a fair call and I don’t blame those who’ve paused or held back from ordering a bottle because they’re waiting for an independent review or opinion.
Well, the good news is that the Whisky & Wisdom Glenfarclas has been “out there” for some time, and it’s been getting rave reviews everywhere. As well as being available through the official Whisky Empire site (see below), the bottling is available by the dram in a few good whisky bars, and has also been picked up by a number of independent liquor retail shops and outlets. Social media has been very busy, with lots of positive comments appearing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
But for those of you who’d prefer to see some actual independent, unbiased old-fashioned written reviews, the good news is that a significant number of whisky bloggers and online food/drink critics have tasted the Whisky & Wisdom Glenfarclas and they’ve written glowing, rave reviews.
So, to save you the hassle of tracking all those reviews down, here are the ones I’m aware of at this point in time. (No doubt others might appear as the bottling falls into more and more hands). I’ll leave you to check out the below links in your own good time but, if and when you’d like to acquire a bottle or two for yourself, you can order directly from The Whisky Empire
Here are those great reviews for you to check out…
