Nose: Orange marmelade slams your nose as prune and dark stewed fruits join. Love the way farmhouse notes appear in a while. Palate: Oh my God! This is heavenly as it starts with Demerara syrup and joined by coffee, plums and coffee. Texture is big and juicy. Rich, velvety and magical. Finish: Chocolate gets together with ginger, clove and nutmeg. It has a medium to long finish. It ends with a nice sweet touch of smoke.
GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 was born as a collaboration between The GlenDronach Distillery and director Matthew Vaughn who is a fan of the distillery. Since 1991 is the birth year of the main character ‘Eggsy’, single malt was decided to be barreled in 1991 and aged for 25 years. Though film is full of whisky. Eggsy’s US ally The Statesman organization is also disguised as master distillers in Kentucky.
Despite the whisky content of the movie, this bottle has enough the story, plot, characters, richness in it. I fell in love at the first sip and I feel lucky to feel the amber liquid in my veins.
I was quite biased before trying this whisky as quite a bit marketing was involved in the campaign. However, I can have no negative comments about Glendronach Kingsman Edition 1991. The only thing I am sorry about is the number of bottles since we won’t be finding this gem soon.
