Glenfarclas 1974 Availability, Thoughts

Postby Red_Arremer » Thu Nov 13, 2008 2:53 pm

Some friends and I are going to a Glenfarclas tasting hosted by Joe Howel and George Grant at Federal Wine & Spirits in Boston MA tonight. There will be 1974 vintage bottles available to buy at the tasting. I haven't seen them around anywhere else.

In your opinions, is the 1974 Glenfarclas hard enough to find that if I like it, I should just snap it up right there?

In Massachusetts, It's a fellony to order and recieve liquor without a distributors license. My impression is that US liquor sellers know this and won't ship to ordinary citizens of MA. Maybe some oversees companies wouldn't know or care, but that's a gamble and I've heard some bad stories.

If this is about the Glenfarclas 1974 Vintage 31 Year Old Cask Strength, released in the US only, I'd like to revive this thread. Thoughts? I've been considering it, but maybe I should save my money and get an affordable older standard like the 21 or the 25 instead.

As Sean says, I do have a bottle (actually two!) and I do rave about it! A wonderfully sherried cask strength 'Farclas. It's still available at Binny's for $189.99.


Cheers!

Unless that '68 is from The Family Cask edition (38yo 65.1% ABV) Euphoria in a bottle! Easily one of the top 3 whisky's I have ever tasted!


Cheers!
