GlenDronach Announce GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10
Today GlenDronach have announced the 10th release in the Grandeur series, a marriage of some of the oldest and most unique Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from the distillery. Created by Master Blender, Rachel Barrie, the tenth release is a 27 year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky, bottled at 50.1% vol, with 2293 bottles being filled.
The GlenDronach Master Blender Rachel Barrie said
“Quietly maturing for over 27 years in the darkness of our dunnage warehouses, The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10 is 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.
Founded in 1826, The GlenDronach Distillery was one of the very first licensed distilleries. Although times have moved on, The GlenDronach distillery remains largely unchanged, its spirit maturing slowly and steadily in sherry casks in old traditional dunnage warehouses. Batch 10 encapsulates this character through the centuries, lasting long into the richly satisfying treacle and truffle finish.”
GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 10 Tasting Notes

Taste: Exquisite sherry cask maturation combining elegance, richness and complexity. Sip morello cherries in dark chocolate with a crescendo of blackberry jus.
Finish: Savour black truffle, old-fashioned treacle gingerbread, prune and walnut oil lingering long into the richly satisfying finish.
