Distilled by Benrinnes, bottled by Adelphi and selected for the nation of Switzerland, this 10yr expression was matured in sherry cask #301810 and bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering.
Powerful plum, toffee, sticky pudding. Sherry is powerful and aggressive. Lovely blackberry character, rich honey and raspberry. Brown sugar and praline. Exceptional nose.
Blackberry, pear, apple crisp. The advent of some ash and minerality. Faint peaty smoke. Plays nicely with the sweet sherry here. Fig, stewed fruits, cocoa and caramel.
Long finish, pungent and sweet. Lovely ash, some soil, minerality.
Nice balance, showing really elegant complexity for a scotch this young.
