Nose
Nutty, almondy, Oloroso sherry.
Palate
Very firm, rounded. Honey, lemons, pistachio nuts, angelica, garden mint.
Finish
Like biting into a green leaf. Tree-bark woodiness. Cinnamon. Fragrant. Long.
Comment
An elegant middleweight after the oak-fisted heavyweight 23 Years Old in the same series.

Jim Murray

85
Nose
Fresh and briny, younger than its great age. A delicate hint of sherry adds extra weight, as does a wisp of smoke.
Palate
Fat and fabulously textured: acacia honey and fruity maltiness. A subtle peatiness adds an extra, unexpected dimension.
Finish
Enormously long and increasingly spicy. Great complexity of vanilla, peat and enormous malt richness.
Comment
Unquestionably the finest Glenury I have tasted in 20 years and extraordinary for its age. Among the best low-peated Rare Malt bottlings of all time.
