Glendronach 24 Year Old Grandeur Batch 9
This is my first time sampling the Grandeur, which i've heard a lot of people rave about over the years.
This is the first version of this brought together by Master Blender Rachel Barrie and has been composed using a handful of highly distinctive Spanish oak sherry butts distilled in 1990, 1992 and 1993 .
Huge, rich bold, sweet, spicy, this is a very complex dram, with more underlying notes that i was expecting. I genuinely thought this was going to be one of those Sherried drams i would hate, one dimensional and without complexity, a slap to the face as such, but its not it has depth, and is such a delicious dram.
To grab a bottle speak to your local Specialists such as Master of Malt.
Thanks to Glendronach for the official sample.
Sweet easy going dried fruits and fruit cake, a hint of like neoprene, beeswax furniture polish, touch of thick treacle, plum skins and nectarines, cinnamon and Demerara sugar coated peach slices and instant coffee granules.
Rich and bold, dried fruits, cinnamon Demerara sugar, treacle scones, more of that instant coffee granules, some spice and bitter orange peel,and pith.
Sweet and spicy, very tasty
