GlenDronach 1989 Kingsman Edition 29 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Regular priceSale price
The GlenDronach Kingsman edition 1989, created to mark the release of the film the King’s Man, encapsulates this style beautifully. 700ml | 51.1%
It has been crafted by the GlenDronach Master Blender Rachel Barrie, in collaboration with the Kingsman film series producer, writer and director Matthew Vaughn – The GlenDronach being his single malt scotch whisky of choice.
Matured in Oloroso Sherry casks with a final maturation in Pedro Ximénez casks from Spain, this twenty-nine year old vintage is richly sherried and complex, with an enduring finish. Six of the finest casks from 1989 remain in the warehouses at the GlenDronach Distillery, and each bottle of this vintage release is carefully hand-numbered to reflect its rarity.
This exceptional vintage is the same age as the whisky held in the oldest bottle of the GlenDronach housed at the GlenDronach Distillery – a twenty-nine year old whisky, bottled in 1913, just before the outbreak of the first World War. That rare bottle, now over a century old, was gifted to the Distillery, and remains unopened as a mark of respect to fallen friends.
COLOUR: Tarnished Copper.
AROMA: Dark field berry and plum skin on a base of aromatic bitters, sherry-soaked walnut and vintage leather. Musk and cedar wood smoulder on a slate and earthen floor.
TASTE: Dense autumn fruits meld with date, fig and treacle, rolling into black winter truffle, raisin and cocoa.
FINISH: Blackberry, tobacco leaf and date oil linger into the rich, deep finish.
