"A whisky named "Grandeur" has a lot to live up to, but GlenDronach is up to the task. Its reputation for sherry-forward scotch is upheld in this incredible dram. Sweet and nutty on the nose, it drapes itself across the palate with notes of raisin, vanilla, almond, and clove. For all that it never comes across as cloying, balanced by an admirable 100.2 proof. It's a wonderfully rich and exquisite whisky, and a delight to savor."
