Glenfarclas 40 Years Old named Best Malt Whisky in Australia by the MWSOA

Glenfarclas 40 Years Old was the highest scoring whisky in the recent Malt Whisky Society of Australia whisky awards. Coming top out of the 40 single malts entered in the competition, Glenfarclas 40 Years Old received a Gold Medal, and has been named Best Malt Whisky available in Australia. In addition the Glenfarclas 40 Years Old also won the ‘Member’s Choice’ Trophy, at the Awards Dinner.

Chairman of the Malt Whisky Society of Australia, Craig Daniels, said, ‘The Glenfarclas 40 ticked all the boxes and the relatively high strength contributes a zestiness that is truly rare in malts of such venerable age’.

Commenting on the win, Richard Angove, Brand Manager, of Angove Family Wine Makers, the Glenfarclas agent in Australia said, ‘The Malt Whisky Society of Australia host Australia’s most prestigious and well know Malt Whisky Awards. It is great to see that not only the Judges voted the Glenfarclas 40 Years Old the best but so too did the people, a fantastic result for the Glenfarclas team and we are proud to represent them here in Australia’.

This was the sixth time this blind tasting competition has been held, and Glenfarclas 40 Years Old follows on the success of Glenfarclas 30 Years Old which won the competition in 2003 and 2009.

This is the third major accolade received by Glenfarclas 40 Years Old this year, having been named Scotch Whisky Single Malt of the year by Malt Advocate in February, and named Best Speyside Single Malt in the World Whisky Awards in April.
