The distillery was founded in 1836 by Robert Hay on the same site as an illicit still which was operational from 1797 and remained under his control until his passing in 1865. The distillery was then purchased for £511.19sd by John Grant and his son George

Interesting fact: While Glenfarclas states that it is a Highland Single Malt, the distillery is located within the Speyside region of Scotland. 

The distillery became the first to release a cask strength single malt in 1968 and this was later given the name Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength. The 105 refers to the whisky being at 105 proof, or 60% abv.

The aromas are complex, oaky, apples and pears, and a tempting dark toffee sweetness. The palate is dry and assertive, develops quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint of oak and sherried fruit. Amazingly smooth for the strength; wonderfully warming and with a lingering smokiness, yet very rounded.
