De tidligere aftapninger af Family Collector editions har spændt over flere generationer og inkluderet vintage aftapninger fra Fino Sherry Casks, first fill Oloroso Sherry Casks og Port Casks. Den 5. udgave er en vatting af udvalgte refill Sherry Butts, hvilket har givet 1094 flasker aftappet ved 53.8% som vil være i handlen i september måned.
"Both John L. S Grant and his father, George S. Grant, would have watched over the filling of these casks in the 1980s. This was a significant time period in the history of the Scotch whisky industry, and also for Glenfarclas. Due to a steady over-production of whisky and falling demand many distilleries were closed, moth-balled or cut back production.
Despite these tough circumstances, in 1984, the Grant’s decided to do the exact opposite and increase production. Their decision was straightforward - “where was all the mature stock going to come from in a few years’ time?” A combination of risk taking and visionary genius, today the Grant family proudly introduce this 1986 vintage, released 30 years after its creation as a treasured collector’s edition."
