    Benriach

  • ABV:

    55.5%

  • Age:

    18 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a Benriach single cask bottled for Astor Wines in NYS. It is 18 years old, bottled at cask strength with no filtration, coloration and port matured.

  • Nose:

    Rich stewed fruits, honey, cocoa and caramel. Nutty, nougat, strawberry preserve. Oak, tobacco, pepper.

  • Taste:

    Thick and rich - a little heat. There is some oakiness here and some nice pepper to pair well with cocoa and caramel. Mild sulfur. Tons of really rich fruits, cherry, strawberry, fig and a faint wisp of smokiness.

  • Finish:

    Long, dry and oaky. This blends well with lots of sweet fruits.

  • Overall:

    I really enjoyed this but it did lean a hair on the oaky, dry and tannic end of things for me. This was a nice balance to keep it from being too cloyingly sweet with all of that sweet fruits but it was a touch heavy handed.

  • Score:

    7
