Om otte dage frigives en ny aftapning fra Glenfarclas.
Det drejer sig om en 41 år gammel whisky som er udvalgt af den belgiske Glenfarclas superentusiast og samler, Luc Timmermans.
Aftapningen er en vatting af to sherry fade - et oloroso og et fino sherry fad.
Ved at vatte de to fade, har man angiveligt opnået et bedre slutresultat end ved at aftappe dem individuelt.
Grant familien har godkendt en speciel label, hvor elementer fra både de klassiske Family Cask labels og en speciel håndskreven label fra Thosop aftapningerne indgår.

Ja, tæt på de 300 € - og det er faktisk ikke dyrt hvis man sammeligner med Family Cask serien...

Det er lidt misvisende at angive at aftapningen frigives om otte dage.

Fadene forventes aftappet den 18 august i Skotland. Dernæst kommer etikettering, transport til Belgien, fortoldning, m.m.

Luc regner med at det varer ca. 6 uger fra nu før han kan ekspedere bestillinger.

Han tager mod reservationer nu.

Første indtryk fra Ruben:

Glenfarclas 41 yo 1968 (xx%, OB 2010 for Thosop, cask #702 & 5240, xxx btl.)
Nose: the oloroso sherry is easy to notice, but it shows much more layers. There's a fresh layer of sweet fruits (mirabelles, redcurrant marmalade, lovely ripe tangerine and even raspberry jelly) and a darker layer of dried fruits (dates, raisins), chocolate and toffee. And a third layer of spices, oak polish, cigar boxes and some mint and eucalyptus. Just a hint of dusty oak and old leather book covers in the background. After some time it gets more playful, the fruits becomes bigger and the masculine side of the sherry makes place for a feminine softness and sweetness. A thrilling nose with awesome complexity. Mouth: a firm attack. There are woody notes, prunes, lots of dark chocolate and some cold coffee. A few notes that remind me of a meat sauce with wine (must be the mix of sherry with the herbal elements). A little mint and soft pepper. Fig and blackcurrant jam. A tad less wide than on the nose but really impressive at this age. Finish: long, drying, with lingering fruits.

In a way, this is like a richer, more powerful version of the official Glenfarclas 40yo: it shows different types of Glenfarclas style (with just two casks!), mixed together to create an even better result. Now let's stop typing and just enjoy"¦

Score: 93/100

Projektet løb forudsigeligt nok ind i visse forsinkelser. Blandt andet blev hele sendingen leveret i første omgang med etiketter der sad skævt og løst. Det måtte laves om.

Nu tager Luc endelig imod betaling (€315 incl. levering til DK) og lover forsendelse tidligt i næste uge.

Jeg tror jeg springer over denne gang - er jo også rigeligt bagud :wink:

Det er da muligt andre synes, det er billigt, men jeg synes det er lidt i overkanten. Købte en 1966 - 39år i 2006 for en fjerdedel af prisen. Men så havde den jo heller ikke så fin en etiket :roll:

Noter fra Serge:

Glenfarclas 41 yo 1968/2010 (49.7%, OB for Thosop BVBA, Belgium) Five stars A vatting of a first fill oloroso hogshead and a first fill fino hogshead, both selected by our friend Luc Timmermans. Colour: amber. Nose: think fruitcake, honeys, leather, putty, patanegra ham, mint liqueur and sandalwood and add a wee drop of very old balsamic vinegar. There, you have it. With water: the oak comes out but it's not a varnishy one. Faint mouldiness, old wine cellar, saltpetre. Mouth: a tad more vigorous than the nose, more tannic as well. Pepper and capsicum, cloves, tobacco, prunes, old Armagnac, blackcurrants"¦ It's not a smooth old Glenfarclas this time, rather a fighter! With water: some fruits are back, some aren't. Banana skin, dried pears, green tea. Finish: rather long, more on mint tea, with a little aniseed in the aftertaste besides the tannins. Comments: funny that Luc's chosen these casks (while he had dozens at hand). It seems that he wanted to bottle something ‘different'. I think it's really excellent but not for people who are scared of a little oak. I'm not ;-) . SGP:471 - 91 points.
