Movember is a men’s health charity which raises awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world.
£10 from the sale of every bottle of Glenfarclas – Movember 2011 will be donated to Movember.
So, what about the Glenfarclas – Movember 2011?
This 9 year old Glenfarclas was distilled in September 2002 and bottled in September 2011. The whisky has been taken from two Oloroso sherry hogshead casks and has been described as an ‘aperitif whisky’.
It has an amazing dark, rich, golden colour and is certainly not your typical Glenfarclas.
Here’s my tasting verdict:-
Nose: Immediate hit of rich, warm sherry.
Palate: Very sweet, fruit with a hint of zest.
Finish: Christmas cake and hints of spice and a dry finish.
Overall: Like MOM says, very morish. “Like another?” “Don’t mind if I do.”
Don’t forget, Glenfarclas – Movember 2011 is a Limited Edition and for the taste alone is not likely to stay on the shelves too long.
Bearing in mind that it’s part of the Movember campaign, I think you’ll have to be quick and secure a bottle if you want to get your whiskers wet!
