The GlenDronach Distillery has unveiled its newest release: The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11.
This is a 28-year-old single malt selected by Master Blender Rachel Barrie from a collection of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks.
“The GlenDronach Grandeur is an unparalleled range of the finest aromas and character from masterful Spanish oak sherry cask maturation,” says Barrie. “A single malt of elegant finesse, this expression offers a symphony of sherry aromatics interwoven with dark manuka honey, roasted almond and walnut. It is intense and full-bodied, as is the signature of The GlenDronach, with a crescendo of black cherry and espresso adorning each mouthful.”
A limited amount of Grandeur Batch 11 will roll out nationally. Each individual bottle is sealed with wax and numbered by hand to reflect its rarity.
The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11 comes bottled at 48.9% ABV. It is available in the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $800 per 750-ml. bottle.
This follows recent news of Brown-Forman investing $30.5-million to increase production at The GlenDronach Distillery.
