A brilliantly-balanced mouth-coating beauty, this Glenury Royal is a very special whisky from a tragically lost distillery, and we've always been surprised that it didn't sell out years ago - especially after a 92 point review from Whiskyfun.Tasting Notes (2)
- There may be floating particles in this whisky. These are harmless Potassium Tartrate crystals, known as 'wine diamonds', that are a natural by-product of the whisky's maturation.
- Parma Violet
Producer's Tasting Notes
Vivacious for its age; complex, full and deep. Perfume and fruit dominate at first, led by vanilla and parma violets, black cherries and cooked apricots. Behind them lies a leathery, masculine note leading into burnt sugar, chocolate and mint.Water mellows all. Perfume and fruit give way now to wedding cake, treacle and soft leathery aromas.
Medium to full.Velvety and mouthfilling.
Pleasantly soft at natural strength. Smoky to start, then a scented and deliciously layered fruitiness that reminds you of a sandalwood box containing sweet treats - Turkish delight, dried fruits, black plum.Water makes the mouthfeel more waxy, even teeth coating.The flavour is gloriously mellow and agreeably balanced.
Polished leather and boat varnish, then more delicious caramelised fruit.
Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Very fresh, extremely fresh, astonishingly fresh. Lots of flowers from the fields, lavender honey, apricot syrup at first nosing, before it switches to bunches of fruity notes (primarily fresh pineapples, guavas, very ripe mangos). It keeps developing on old roses, gewürztraminer, lychee syrup, musk perfume… Both dried and fresh oranges.
Goes on with some distant farmy notes (can you here the dogs barking?), wet hay, bonfire. Also something mineral, chalky, burnt matchsticks. Not bold at all but very complex, with a very long development, and no signs of over-ageing whatsoever. Ah, yes, now I get a few waxy notes… Very delicate indeed.
Lots of vitality! Sweet, creamy but nervous, bold but not invading, on lots of fruit jams with a very nice feeling of ‘acidity’ that keeps it perfectly balanced. Almost no traces of wood, right in Diageo’s current style. It gets very gingery, though, in a very nice way. Develops on apricot pie, cooked apples with caramel, herbal tea, quince jelly. Hints of tangerine liqueur, Mandarine Impériale, dried kumquats, roasted nuts (all kinds). A little nutmeg, cinnamon… Lots of oomph but always balanced. The finish is long, on fruit liqueurs and even a little rummy. Very, very good and amazingly young. Sure it’s not infanticide (yes, that’s an expression some use in the wine world) but maybe they should have waited another thirty or forty years to bottle it?

This is the best example of Glenury you will find. One of the most highly respected malts by blenders prior to its demise. This is a wonderful mix of Pear, smoke, sweetness and a heathery honey hint that you can find .A classic Highland malt and a huge loss. Buy it while you can.
