Glendronach Grandeur Batch 009 24 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
A whisky that continues to be on strict allocation and getting harder to source every year. 1,487 bottles of this sherried Speysider were released to the public with Australia allocated a fraction of that. Personally selected by Master Blender, Rachel Barrie, from some of the most extraordinary and remarkable Spanish oak sherry casks from 1990, 1992 and 1993, it promises a typically super-complex and full-bodied whisky for which the distillery has become famous. Presented in a handsome wooden case. Expect an utterly luxurious sensory experience. Notes from Glendronach... NOSE: A carefully woven tapestry of stone fruit, baked quince and glazed cherries on a seductive bed of sandalwood, roast chestnuts and subtle musk- scented leather. The freshness of oak balsam lifts and lengthens throughout, sustaining the exceptional balance and complexity. PALATE: An elegant, deep and perfectly integrated palate combines a myriad of sherry cask tastes in each sip; an initial burst of rich sherry-laced fruitcake intriguingly opens up to reveal baked orange, sultana and luscious black cherries. CONCLUSION: As time slowly passes, the taste lengthens and deepens towards an elegant dark chocolate mint, raisin and angelica root velvet finish. 48.7% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
