Glenfarclas Family Casks


I've been invited to something really cool. No, make that something, really, really, really cool.

This weekend in Stockholm, Glenfarclas distillery is holding a complete vertical tasting of ALL their family casks, from 1952 to 1994. That's 43 years of whisky. It's a one time event, and... I get to go!

I feel really lucky - I know this will be a great experience and a wonderful learning opportunity - despite liking whisky I really don't know that much about it, and I'm not skilled enough to recognize nuances, so I'm very much looking forward to this. I'll only attend one of the two days, so I'll be trying.. oh.. 21 years or so. Still an awful lot of whisky!

I don't know if there are any tickets left, but you can find out, and read more about the event here. If you want to read about Glenfarclas distillery, there's a very nice story about it here.

Yes, I'll definitely have the camera! (Although I doubt I'll bother with individual shots - think there's a difference between, say, one from 1958 and 1964? Well, maybe there is!) And it says that you're very much advised to NOT swallow. At least not all of it. :)

Oh lucky you! I have been to a couple of informal whisky tastings and they are fun. Just make sure you have a nice fry-up beforehand to line your stomach really well ;-)
