New GlenDronach “Grandeur”March 25th, 2010
This just came in, so I thought I would post it up before I get on with the rest of my day. Sounds very exciting. The press release doesn’t list price or availability, but I’ll get it for you. Excerpts of the release are below.
GLENDRONACH GRANDEUR WILL GLADDEN THE HEARTS OF CONNOISSEURS WORLDWIDE
When the BenRiach Distillery Company purchased GlenDronach two years ago, it signalled a re-birth for this the grandest of East Highland malts.
At the time MD Billy Walker said: “We hope our acquisition of GlenDronach will intrigue, surprise and delight whisky connoisseurs around the world.”
It’s set to gladden the hearts of connoisseurs around the world.
Endearing and enduring, the GlenDronach style is that of a big, smooth, sherried whisky – and Grandeur preserves and perpetuates that great tradition.
Marketing Manager Kerry White: “”This superb expression, a thirty-one-year-old at 45.8 vol. cask strength, is a classical representation of the smooth, complex and full-bodied style that the GlenDronach Distillery is famous for. Individually numbered by hand, each bottle is a one-off and truly unique.”
Billy Walker’s tasting notes reveal the remarkable subtleties of Grandeur:
Nose – A tremendous concentration of fruits, nuts and berries enveloped in a coffee and mocha glaze. Subtle sweet sherry notes interact beautifully with sticky date pudding aromas.
Palate– Very big and gusty flavours adorn each mouthful, yet with perfect balance and refinement. Initial spiced orange flavours and rich old Oloroso sherry are met mid-palate with roasted almonds, coffee and treacle. The dry concentrated flavours from the almonds and the oloroso sherry are balanced in perfect harmony with sultanas, chocolate and honey.
Conclusions– This is a rewarding, memorable and captivating GlenDronach expression for a very special occasion.
