42 years good

Really nice new arrival that is hard to place - where is Glendarroch anyway. There is a great history to read, but this bottle cannot be from a distillery that last produced in 1937. History here: http://whiskystory.blogspot.com/search/label/Glendarroch . Other web sources suggest this is really a Glenfarclas as they do not like independant bottlers to use their name.
This whiskey is a bourbon barrel lovers dream. It has that rich golden brown color. It starts off with some smoke, but not peat - most likely charring of the barrel. AA nice maltiness to it and even a hint of sherry is found. Really long and takes water well too.
