Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or.
  • Nose : ample, tendu. Sur sa circonférence, on trouve des oranges confites, des fleurs capiteuses (freesia, jacinthe) et des noix grillées. Son centre est composé de fruits secs (amande, noix de cajou) et d’épices (cannelle, gingembre). Particulièrement chaleureux, le nez de ce Benrinnes demande que l’on prenne son temps car il devient de plus en plus exotique (noix de coco, kaki).
  • Palate : extrêmement vive, elle fait preuve en même temps de beaucoup de finesse. Des notes lactiques (bouillie d’orge, lait d’amande) sont présentes de bout en bout. En réalité, elles servent de tremplin aux agrumes confits (citron), aux épices (badiane), aux notes de chocolat et de caramel au beurre salé que la bouche diffuse au fur et à mesure. Elle évoque avec gourmandise un éclair au café.
  • Overall : longue, élégante. Une fine couche de réglisse enrobe les papilles. Des fruits exotiques (banane, ananas) alimentent la toute fin de bouche. Entre-temps, des fruits secs (amande) et des fèves de cacao lui procurent beaucoup d’onctuosité. La rétro-olfaction est légèrement miellée (acacia) et le verre vide est camphré.
The brand

The brand

Benrinnes remains relatively undiscovered, but is nevertheless well-known amongst whisky lovers. Its tumultuous history featured a succession of reconstructions and changes in ownership, until in 1925 it was finally given some stability by being incorporated into the Distillers Company Limited. This distillery, which was equipped with its own saladin box for malting its barley until 1984, is noted for its rather unconventional “partial triple distillation”. Although its rare official bottlings have remained in the shadows: The Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts collections, its most expressive whiskies are to be found on the independent bottlings market.

Merchant

Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.

The line

Launched in October 2013, Old Particular Single Cask is a series of single malts that have been individually selected from the best producers across all regions of Scotland. It is ‘particular’ in that it offers authentic whiskies, without chill filtering or the addition of colouring, which give them a richer aromatic profile due to the fatty acids and enzymes that are naturally present after distillation. Exceptionally, Douglas Laing is offering single casks at 48.4% for whiskies up to the age of 18 years-old and 51.5% for malt whiskies that have been aged for 19 years, all presented in an elegant box worthy of the finest Scottish single malts.
