Another great distillery producing meaty charactered malts for Diageo blends. Benrinnes is quite popular amongst independent bottlers and appreciated by connoisseurs for it's light, fruity character. This particular cask of Benrinnes was aged in a bourbon hogshead and finished in an Oloroso Hogshead. Rather than going for a "coloured" result, we kept the finishing short to add a magical layer of prunes, sultanas and spices to this already accomplished malt.

BENRINNES 12 YEAR OLD TASTING NOTES

Selim's tasting notes

Nose: Almonds, quince jelly, custard, gooseberries and pancakes.

Palate: Marzipan and bitter almonds. Gooseberries, lemon, and croissants.

Finish: Heather honey, limoncello, lemon drops and butter.

Ed Leigh's tasting notes

Colour: Natural colour, deep gold or bronze. Coats the sides of the glass thickly with a lingering tide line.

Nose: Stewed fruit crumble. Apples with forest fruits cooked in spiced syrup, topped with buttery crumble. The crumble has browned and become toasted around the edges. Thick vanilla custard. Backed by malt and oak.

Palate: Thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Bright red fruit and berries with spices and candied orange. Dry oak with a little vanilla. Apples and pears join the red fruit, the longer you hold the whisky on your tongue. At 54% the alcohol is well integrated, adding just a little warmth, and plenty of body.

Finish: Medium, tingling spices are left once the berries and apples disappear.
