Tasting Notes

Nose

Fresh and briny, younger than its great age. A delicate hint of sherry adds extra weight, as does a wisp of smoke.

Palate

Fat and fabulously textured: acacia honey and fruity maltiness. A subtle peatiness adds an extra, unexpected dimension.

Finish

Enormously long and increasingly spicy. Great complexity of vanilla, peat and enormous malt richness.

Comment

Unquestionably the finest Glenury I have tasted in 20 years and extraordinary for its age. Among the best low-peated Rare Malt bottlings of all time.
