Whisky Tasting – A Remarkable and Rare Glenury Royal
Now we have a special tasting tonight, thanks to Pat Roberts of Cognis Public Relations in London who sent us a good sample.
So we opened the bottle of:-
This is a very limited edition as there were only just of 1400 bottles released. Matured in American Oak Casks which were filled in 1970. The recommended price for this old dram is £499.00
We are sad to say that this distillery closed in 1983 and later some parts demolished and the rest turned into flats, a sad ending for a fabulous old distillery.
Nose…A timber yard full of oak, strong vanilla fudge cake, children’s opal fruit sweets, a background whiff of smoke.
Taste…Quite rich, Fry’s chocolate cream bar, oak, sweet and fruity, light bbq fire smoke, a little bitter espresso note.
Finish…Delightfully long and woody, drying, a great after dinner dram giving some sweet and bitter notes, a delight.
Nose…Vanilla marshmallows, dark coffee syrup, dark wood stain.
Taste…Sweet cigar smoke, coffee beans, bitter chocolate, minty lemon drops, chocolate walnut whip.
Finish…Long, oaky and smoky.
Overall score 4.5 Corks
What a fabulous dram, an ideal after dinner dram, but not after every dinner, this is one for a special occasion dinner with family and very close friends, sipping slowly with just a teardrop of water if you wish.
