A follow-up to 2012's cognac cask, this is a well aged 31 year old whisky from Glenfarclas that has spent its life in a port cask. Expect seriously rich flavour and the distillery's trademark heavy spirit.
A very handsome bottling of long-aged Glendronach, the malts that went into Grandeur have been aged over three decades in the finest sherry wood and the bottling is described by its proud owners as "a classical representation of the smooth, complex and full-bodied style that the GlenDronach Distillery is famous for." Sounds good to us.
