A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt whisky
From Benrinnes, an active distillery on Speyside
A very rare malt, highly prized by collectors
The first limited release from the distillers for five years. Latest of three limited releases to be offered by the distillery, beginning with a 21 year old Rare Malt
Interesting to compare with 23 year old 1985 released 2009.
From ex-sherry European Oak casks.
Only 2,892 individually numbered bottles worldwide.
Appearance: Polished copper or beech. Excellent beading.
Nose: Extremely reserved, but clearly savoury at first: almost sapid with hints of truffle oil, or earthy with a fruity sweetness as found in ginger cake with sultanas. This soon settles down to fruit-cake mix with allspice and nutmeg. With time, sweetness emerges as dark treacle toffee; then grows richer, as sweet, buttery pastry and whipped cream. Later, newly burnt toast leads to a charred conclusion, with embers from a wood fire. Equally slow with water; waxier though, with a little steamed ginger sponge, some fruit cake, and aromatic woody notes.
Body: Light. Gently oily.
Palate: Big, smooth-textured and mouth-filling, with a sweet and spicy nature. The first sip cools, then the taste catches fire! Briefly salty and savoury, with oily undertones, then a developing toffee sweetness eventually leads to (appetising) burnt pastry. With water, the texture is equally smooth, the taste a fine, more-ish balance of sweet and spicy.
Finish: Lengthy, chewy and warming, with a menthol effect, a hint of flint, then burnt currants on Christmas cake or dried orange peel. There are notes of almond in the beautifully aromatic aftertaste and there’s a very late, charred astringency with a faded trace of smoke.
