GlenDronach has launched the 10th expression in its limited edition Grandeur range, a 27-year-old single malt matured in some of the distillery’s ‘oldest and most unique’ Sherry casks.
Grandeur Batch 10 is described as an ‘intense Sherry expression’ containing notes of ‘morello cherries in dark chocolate’ with a finish comprised of ‘black truffle, old-fashioned treacle gingerbread, prune and walnut oil’.
Bottled at 50.1% abv, the whisky has been matured in a combination of ex-PX and oloroso Sherry puncheons and butts.
GlenDronach master blender Rachel Barrie said: ‘With layers of damson plum, black walnut and truffle on a bed of antique leather and old-fashioned treacle gingerbread, Batch 10 celebrates the robust, full-bodied style of the GlenDronach distillery.’
Only 2,293 bottles of the limited edition malt are available worldwide from specialist retailers, priced around £499.
GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 9, released in February 2018, was a 24-year-old single malt made from a vatting of three different vintages.
