Family owned J&G Grant is releasing a new 18yo expression of its single malt Glenfarclas onboard Viking Lineâ€™s M/S Cinderella during this week's Cinderella Whisky Fair.
Billed as the worldâ€™s largest floating whisky festival, the show takes place on the Cinderella as the ship cruises the Baltic Sea from 17â€“20 January
In keeping with the brand's traditional style, the 18yo is heavily sherried and bottled at natural colour.
Glenfarclas 18yo is presented in a red and copper foil tube designed to stand out on shelf and appeal particularly to gift buyers. The individual gift tubes are marked â€˜Exclusive to Travel Retailâ€™, a message which is more prominently displayed on the outer case.
Glenfarclas 18yo is only available in a 1 litre bottle. The recommended retail price is Â£75 (US$120) at 43% strength.
Colour: Its natural colour is described as â€œsunshine on a barley fieldâ€.
Nose: Fresh sweet aromas of honeycomb, citrus notes and a hint of vanilla, followed by more citrus fruits and roasted hazelnuts.
Taste: Described as â€œfuller and more powerful than suggested by the appearance and aromaâ€. Flavours include creamy fudge, dried fruits, almonds, Coxâ€™s apples and prunes.
Finish: Long lasting, smooth and satisfying
