The Glendronach Launches Rare 28-year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

After much anticipation, The GlenDronach has released their Grandeur Batch 11. This 28-year-old Single Malt was hand-selected by Master Blender, Rachel Barrie, from a small number of rare Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks. This is an exquisite example of The GlenDronach’s signature richly-sherried Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

After nearly three decades of maturing in fine sherry casks, this rare and luxurious expression embodies The GlenDronach’s commitment to crafting the most exceptional Single Malts, using time-honoured methods passed down through the generations for almost two centuries.

There will be a limited number of Batch 11 bottles available from selected specialist retailers. Each individual bottle will be sealed with wax and numbered by hand to reflect its rarity.

Rachel Barrie, Master Blender said: “The GlenDronach Grandeur is an unparalleled range of the finest aromas and character from masterful Spanish oak sherry cask maturation. 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.”

The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11 will be available to purchase from specialist retailers worldwide from October 2022. It is bottled at 48.9% ABV and, like all The GlenDronach expressions, gets its deep colour from Spanish oak it is aged in.
