An exquisite and complex BenRiach single cask, bottled by Adelphi.
This was distilled 1999 and bottled 2020 as a 21-year-old. It was matured exclusively in a refill ex-bourbon barel, with just 180 bottles at 59.9%.
Nose: We discover rosewater, potpourri, apple strudel, pistachio and strawberry Hubba Bubba.
Palate: Echoed further with Turkish delight, crisp apples, Frangelico, desiccated coconut and Raffaello confectionery.
Finish: Medium finish is unexpectedly mineral and herbaceous.
