Glenfarclas 25 Year Old Quarter Cask
A limited edition release of the last ten quarter casks remaining at Glenfarclas, amazingly the youngest is 25 years old.
Quarter casks are quite unusual and there are few whiskies that have been matured wholly in these small casks, they are generally used for a brief finishing period than for an entire maturation period. The surface area of wood for the spirit to penetrate is greater in smaller casks therefore using these quarter casks generally creates a whisky which may appear to have characteristics of whiskies older than it's age. Very few whiskies are matured for this length of time in a quarter cask and Glenfarclas has offered us a number of examples over the years, most of which are very popular.
