GlenDronach 33 yr. old returns, GlenDronach 31 yr. old debutsAugust 27th, 2010
It’s nice to see Glendronach 33 year old back on the market, along with this new 31 year old “Grandeur”. The 33 year old is nice, and I’m looking forward to comparing it to the 31 year old. It’s nice to see the higher strength on the 31 year old (although perhaps not the higher price).
Preiss Imports, The Nation’s leading importer of specialty spirits announces the new release of GlenDronach 31 year old, Grandeur, the new super-premium expression.
Aged 31 years, bottled at cask strength and housed in a stunning wooden gift box, Grandeur is the first new release of 2010. The nose has a tremendous concentration of fruits, nuts and berries enveloped in a coffee and mocha glaze; and subtle sweet sherry notes interact beautifully with sticky date pudding aromas. The palate offers big and gusty flavors with perfect balance and refinement. Initial spiced orange and rich old Oloroso sherry are met mid-palate with roasted almonds, coffee and treacle. This is a rewarding, memorable and captivating GlenDronach expression for a very special occasion.

Regarded by many as one of the distilleries greatest releases, GlenDronach 33 year old is back. Matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks it is rich mahogany in color, viscous and syrupy. The nose is huge and aromatic with a combination of sweet stewed fruits, nuts and chocolate. The palate displays real elegance of spiced fruits drizzled in bitter chocolate sauce leading into walnut cake and mocha. GlenDronach 33 year old is a masterful dram which pleases the most jaded of palates.
