Glenfarclas 15YO is retailer's top whisky of 2013

05 December, 2013

Specialist spirits retailer The Whisky Exchange has named Glenfarclas 15 Year Old as its Whisky of the Year.

The accolade was bestowed by a panel of customers, bloggers, journalists and “industry friends” at a blind tasting held at the London visitor attraction Vinopolis where the shop is located.

The whisky came top of  a shortlist of eight which also included Glencadam 15 Year Old, Glenmorangie 10 Year Old, Benromach 10 Year Old, Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old, Tamdhu 10 Year Old, Kilchoman Machir Bay and Lagavulin 16 Year Old.

All the whiskies had to be single malts Scotches, not cask strength, in ready supply and priced at less than £50 a bottle.

Whisky Exchange marketing manager said: “The Whisky of The Year is about celebrating a whisky that can be enjoyed at any occasion by one and all and not a limited edition that only appeals to the connoisseur.”
