The whisky, bottled as Grandeur, has been specially selected by our Master Distiller from some of the oldest and most unique Oloroso casks at The GlenDronach Distillery. This superb expression, a 25 years old at 50.3%, is a classical representation of the smooth, complex and full-bodied style that The GlenDronach is famous for. Individually numbered by hand, each bottle is unique.
EXPRESSION: GlenDronach 25 Years Old Grandeur – Batch 8
APPEARANCE: Rich red wood flecked with gold.
NOSE: A torrent of rich sherry aromas flow over sour plums and dried prunes. A delightful combination of gingerbread and cracked black pepper adds a gentle warmth. Dark chocolate with a touch of marzipan adds contrasting hints of sweetness to the robust, vintage character.
PALATE: An opulent, vintage sherry style combining a medley of dark espresso, Meditteranean fruits, rich molasses and hints of herbal bitters. An earthy, aged oak character of air cured tobacco leaves a leathery dryness adding great depth and texture to the palate, contributing to the unique, full bodied Highland style.
CONCLUSION: After a quarter of a century peacefully lying in our traditional dunnage warehouses, the combination of casks selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker to be bottled as Grandeur encapsulates the rich history and heritage of The GlenDronach Distillery as The Sherry Cask Connoisseurs.
