Scottish whisky distillery GlenDronach on Monday announced the release of The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11, a sherried single malt whisky hand-selected by Master Blender Rachel Barrie from Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks.

“The GlenDronach Grandeur is an unparalleled range of the finest aromas and character from masterful Spanish oak sherry cask maturation,” Barrie said in a news release. “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.”

A limited number of Grandeur Batch 11 bottles will be available, with each bottle sealed with wax and hand-numbered. The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11 is bottled at 48.9% ABV. It is available in the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $800.

The GlenDronach Grandeur Batch 11 Tasting Notes, Via the Brand

Color: Ruby-tinged walnut.

Nose: Opulent and powerful with a symphony of sherry aromatics, interwoven with dark manuka honey, roasted almond, and walnut. Baked plum and ginger captivate the senses, deepening to rustic vintage leather and freshly ground coffee.

Taste: Intense and full-bodied with dark fruit notes on a base of velvet and fine leather. A crescendo of black cherry and espresso adorns each mouthful.

Finish: Richly rewarding, with a persistent chocolate, licorice, and walnut finish.
