GLENURY ROYAL 1984 35 Years Old 49.1%
Quantity limited to 1 bottle per client.
Founded around 1825 by Captain Robert Barclay, the Laird of Ury, Glenury distillery was based in Stonehaven in the eastern highlands.
In 1835 Barclay received special permission from King William IV to add Royal to the name.
Glenury closed for a period during the Second World War due to the restrictions imposed of the use of barley. In the mid 60s the distillery was expanded and the capacity doubled, however in the 1980s the distillery became another victim of the downturn in the whisky industry.
An elegant, oily, fragrant new make, this particular cask has matured in a first fill Sherry butt in the G&M warehouses since 1984.
This last cask of Glenury Royal has matured to be a sweet, fruity single malt.
AROMA: STEWED FRUIT aromas and soft notes of POLISH give way to COCOA POWDER. CINNAMON spice comes to the fore alongside tart PLUM SKIN, TREACLE and subtle traces of TOASTED OAK..
TASTE: Sweet and drying with fresh CHERRY and ORANGE PEEL flavours. BURNT SUGAR and notes of DRIED FIG develop accompanied by BLACKCURRANT and fresh COFFEE grounds.
FINISH: Medium and fruity with lingering ANISEED and SHERRY influences on the finish.
