The GlenDronach Grandeur 27 Year Old Batch 10 Review

19th December 2018
GlenDronach release the next instalment in their premium big sherried Grandeur series.

The GlenDronach Grandeur 27 Year Old Batch 10Just in time for those of you who may be looking for something special to pour over the holiday season or perhaps to see in the New Year, the GlenDronach Distillery has launched the next instalment of their sherry rich premium Grandeur series of single malt whiskies, The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10 27 Year Old.

GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10 is a marriage of some of the oldest and most unique Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from the distillery which have been selected and brought together by the GlenDronach Master Blender, Rachel Barrie.

Rachel describes Grandeur Batch 10 as "a symphony of depth and mellow maturity, reminiscent of times gone by. 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".

GlenDronach Grandeur 27 Year Old Batch 10 is a limited release of 2,293 bottles worldwide making it the largest release in the series to date which I would take as an indication of the quality and popularity of the series, bottled at 50.1% ABV, it has a RRP of £499 and will be available from specialist online whisky shops worldwide such as The Whisky Exchange, The Green Welly Stop and Master of Malt

The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10 Review

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A lovely bitter sweet mix of plum jam and sweet rum infused sultanas with the gentlest peppery edge and some lovely mature oak.

Taste: Mature oak tannins, sweet treacle toffee, raisins and orange which is balanced by dark chocolate and plum, a touch of sulphur in the background.

Finish: The sweetness bitters out giving way to some dark chocolate and coffee notes, some more sulphur and a lingering mildly drying gentle oak spiciness.

Comment: The nose is simply a deliciously sherried pleasure, in the mouth the oak tannins confirm its maturity, overall a pleasurable old sherry oak single malt.

SMW Score 88/100
