BENRIACH 19 ans 1997 Bourbon Cask - 60 ans LMDW Of 54,3%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: COL51928
“Astonishing” is definitely the best adjective to describe this bottling, which invites us to discover Benriach in a particularly medicinal light. And it suits it very well, showing huge energy and exceptional complexity. Die-hard fans of this single malt - and there are lots of them - will also find moments of exotic fruitiness, its usual creamy, almost honeyed, character and the mentholated freshness that it is so well-known for.
Profile: fresh. The nose is unusual, with a powdery (rice), juicy (white grape), green (green malt) character. Notes of olive. Exotic fruit (pineapple). The palate is a mixture of spices, buttery notes and aromatic plants (rosemary, fennel). Fruity finish (orange, strawberry, blackberry).
Single Cask no. 96962 – Bourbon Barrel
Limited edition of 222 bottles

- The brand
Rather unjustly, Benriach was, until just a few years ago, relatively unknown, but it hasn’t ceased to make up for lost time. Indeed, this distillery has, for many decades, had a huge amount to offer and has proven this time and time again since being bought in 2004. Its warehouses are bursting with all sorts of sherry butts (Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez, etc.), new American oak casks, ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, as well as casks previously used for wine, rum, madeira, port and even Rioja! This Speyside single malt is entirely worthy of the interest it has garnered from master blenders since its creation. Find out more
