A 1970 vintage Glenury Royal matured for 29 years and released as part of the Rare Malts series at the turn of the millennium. The distillery was sadly one of the many victims of the 1983 closures.
Nose: rather dry, very herbal and grassy. Some farmy notes… peat? Getting more and more interesting, like kind of a mini-Talisker. Mouth: sweet, perfumy and nicely structured. Again, some farmy notes developing. Lots of crystallized fruits too and even some fresh ones. A very good one, that gets even fruitier with a few drops of water. 87 points.
