Ruby Pagoda Reserve

At a remarkable 62 years old, the Ruby is the pinnacle of the treasured Pagoda Reserve range and also the oldest whisky ever to be released by the Glenfarclas distillery. It features citrus notes, an eloquently rich coating and slight sweetness for exceptional balance. A signature from its era of production. Presented in fine Glencairn crystal, the Pagoda Ruby Reserve is fittingly topped with a handcrafted ruby red coloured stopper. The actual bottle is adorned with real Rubies.

The Pagoda Ruby Reserve is rare beyond measure.

  • Colour:

    Deep Amber

  • Nose:

    Endlessly dark and wintery. Espresso and dark bitter chocolate make a powerful first impression, alongside notes of tart blackberry and gooseberries. Rich spices appear as the whisky wakes up: cloves and nutmeg with some candied orange sweetness balancing a slight astringency. There is a wisp of smoke, intertwined with the distillery character warmly welcome against the intense darkness of the nose.

  • Flavour:

    More citrus notes, especially cloves- in – oranges, appear alongside the darker sherried fruits, and heavy Christmas spices weigh down the already robust palate.

  • Finish:

    An astounding, long finish that is a journey of flavours in itself. Bitter cocoa nibs, old leather and a leafy green edge lead to tobacco and cigar smoke trailing behind. The palate provides an eloquent rich coating, with slight sweetness of the darkest sugars providing exceptional balance signature from this era of production.
