The GlenDronach distillery is launching Batch 9 of its Grandeur expression, a 24-year-old single malt made from a vatting of three different vintages.
The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 9 is comprised of liquid distilled in 1990, 1992 and 1993, and aged in Spanish oak Sherry butts.
Just 1,487 bottles of the Grandeur Batch 9 is being produced, with each individual bottle sealed with wax and numbered by hand.
Bottled at 48.7% abv, the whisky is non-chill-filtered and said to offer notes of ‘stone fruit, baked quince and glazed cherries on a bed of sandalwood’ with a ‘velvet’ finish.
GlenDronach master blender Rachel Barrie said: ‘Grandeur Batch 9 is a single malt of finesse, powerful complexity and persistence, reaching heights of maturity and depth of character that approach single malt perfection.
‘GlenDronach Grandeur is the pinnacle of the signature style, representing rich layers of Highland heritage and terroir.’
The whisky is the ninth expression in a series of limited edition whiskies, released by the Highland distillery under the Grandeur name.
It will be available for around £450 from specialist whisky stores worldwide from February.
