Scotland > Speyside > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Benrinnes
A recreation of a long lost distillery's single malt. Sourced from the Benrinnes distillery, from whom we see very few bottlings (including independents), Matured in Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Sherry and bottled at 46%.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: very doughy and creamy, fruit flan and freshly peeled green bananas; soft and floral with gentle malt and juicy Mandarin oranges; white chocolate and beeswax candles.
Palate: round, creamy, fruity and malty with building spice; the floral tones are still there with a very faint edge of oak; the American oak has left the whisky with loads of cream, vanilla and more waxy honey; the sherry has added to this a touch of leather, crisp spice and some darker fruits; more fruit flan, green bananas and some pineapple.
Finish: big honeyed and malty, it lasts long with the fruits slowly and quietly reemerging and the oak pulls back.
Comment: good value for an 18 year old single malt, especially a pleasant one!
