Distilled by Benrinnes and bottled by James Eadie, this single cask of scotch whiskey was matured in ex-bourbon and then finished in a PX cask #354550, before being bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering.
Fresh, spritely, sherry. Toffee, sweet caramel, faintly nutty. Light strawberry syrup, peach and fig.
Rich cream, toffee, caramel and cocoa. Some cherry, blackberry, fig. Not too hot, spicy or tannic - just a nice combination of lush Benrinnes base malt and gentle sherry.
Short finish, a bit of heat. Orange marmalade, toffee and a hint of coffee.
A really interesting transition from nose to finish. Some hits, some misses, it’s a really good pour but not a deep love for me.
