Not enough users have reviewed this.

  • Distiller:

    Benrinnes

  • Bottler:

    Gordon MacPhail

  • ABV:

    54%

  • Age:

    17 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of Benrinnes spirit by Gordon and MacPhail. After 17 years of maturing in a sherry cask, this was bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Thick, pungent, oily. Orange zest, craem, toffee. Really perfumey.

  • Taste:

    Honey, toffee, old dusty sherry. Nutty amaretto, creme brulee and orange marmalade. Some tobacco and musty leather. Not a lot of heat, great mouth feel.

  • Finish:

    Short, a bit hot. Sulfur, sawfust, caramel.

  • Overall:

    Really great until the disappointing finish.

  • Score:

    5
