The Whisky Corporation in Singapore has released details of its Glenfarclas Pagoda Reserve Series, with just 10 sets available to Asian whisky collectors. They are part of only 100 sets released worldwide.
All 3 members of the Pagoda Reserve Trilogy – Brass (43 years), Silver (48 years) and Gold (59 years) are vintages and distinctive in their own rights. They are bottled in Glencairn Crystal hand-blown decanters and topped with a handcrafted Pagoda stoppers intricately finished with brass, silver and gold respectively.
Pagoda Reserve Brass (43): A warm gold hue with rich dark chocolate flavour notes.
Pagoda Reserve Silver (48): A deep ruby hue with sweet yet spicy flavour notes.
Pagoda Reserve Gold (59): A radiant liquid gold hue with layers of melted milk chocolate flavour notes.
“With only 100 traditional 700ml sets produced, just 10 1.5-litre magnum sets and a collector’s edition of only 30 silver magnums, it is well-known within the industry these whiskies are extremely rare,” said Ben Morley, Chief Operating Officer, The Whisky Corporation.
“Due to the massive pre-order demand prior to its release, only 10 sets will be made available to the market in December. All of the magnums and a total of 90 Trilogies were secured by collectors and those in the know some time ago.”
The distillery also celebrates the launch of the limited edition Glenfarclas Pagoda Ruby Reserve – the oldest whisky ever released by Glenfarclas at 62 years. It features citrus notes, an eloquently rich coating and slight sweetness for exceptional balance.
The whisky is indeed symbolic of another fantastic era of Glenfarclas, marking another fine signature, adored with a namesake, ruby pagoda-shaped stopper and exquisite Glencairn crystal. Of course, the whisky’s rareness must be maintained, hence the 329-litre Pagoda Ruby Reserve 1954 single cask will be unveiled across two releases. The Limited Edition Silver will come in 180 700ml bottles and 62 Magnum 1.5-litre bottles whilst the Collector’s Edition Gold will only have 50 bottles, each in 700ml and magnums.
