GlenDronach Grandeur

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

GlenDronach Grandeur Today the recently re-launched distillery GlenDronach announced a new thirty-one year-old expression selected personally by Mr Billy Walker: GlenDronach Grandeur.

It’s a selection of some of the oldest oloroso casks at GlenDronach. The expression is bottled at 45,8% (cask strength).

The official tasting notes of GlenDronach Grandeur mention “fruits, nuts, berries, coffee and subtle sweet sherry notes with date pudding aromas”.

There are 1013 bottles. No indication of the price…

    The pricing in the UK is £ 335 so probably € 375-400 in Europe.
