On Friday 25th October, Glenfarclas won two awards at The Scottish Field Whisky Challenge, which took place on board the Fingal, which is docked in Leith in Edinburgh.
Glenfarclas took home Gold in the £50 – £100 category, with their Glenfarclas 2008 Distillery Exclusive. Judge Darren Leitch commended the whisky for its flavour profile ‘Chocolate aromas initially, like opening a box of Milk Tray, there are some dry spices, some treacle and a touch of sweet rolling tobacco. This has punch to it.’
They also took home the Scottish Field Summer Challenge Overall Winner with the Glenfarclas 2008 Distillery Exclusive.
