Investerings Whisky.

You'd not be blamed for not knowing about Glenury Royal whisky, as the distillery was closed in 1985 and releases of their whisky are rather scarce. However, Gordon & MacPhail got their hands on a refill Sherry butt of Glenury Royal single malt and bottled it up, as part of their Rare Old range, hooray! This was distilled in 1984, just a year before the distillery was mothballed, and bottled in 2012 with an outturn of 430 bottles.


Glenury Royal 28 yo 1984 (46%, Gordon & MacPhail ‘Rare Old’ 2012, refill sherry butt R0/12/05, 430 btl.)

Nose: old-style and rather understated. Fruity and spicy. Golden apples and sweet nectar. A great waxy side: beeswax as well as plain grease. Old paint. Leather. Hints of cinnamon and candied ginger. Some metallic notes too. Pleasantly unmodern. Mouth: still this oily, waxy profile. A soft sweetness (oranges, floral honey) before it goes towards herbal notes (lovage), menthol and light pepper. Faint mineral notes. Finish: medium long, fading on mineral notes, citrus and leafy notes.

I’ve never had a bad Glenury, you know. Quite an expensive dram, but if you insist on trying this distillery, it is pretty much the cheapest expression you’ll find.
