Thanks to my local store having another tasting i got to taste the rather luxurious Grandeur. The flagship (or at least the most expensive) of the GlenDronach regular range. Released in small batches, this is batch 1.

  • Nose: Meaty and mentholic, lots of coffee, slightly aniseed, brown sugar, ginger and a touch of blossom.

  • Pallet: thick yet elegant, spicy, hard toffee, meatiness comes back, some older sherried notes are there too and a touch of orange

  • Finish: mellows slowly and lingers, ginger, malt biscuits, nutty and dry.

  • Mark neat – 8.6

Similar with my review of the 18 year old there is just nothing great about this whisky, I'm a big fan of GlenDronach, their robust heavily sherried style really works for me. However this expression just isn't the Glendronach that knocks my socks off, and for over $800 dollars i would expect my socks to be troubled.
