A 10 Year Old Benrinnes finished for almost 2 years in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Originally distilled in December 2010 this release is a batch of just 435 bottles at an impressive 56.8% abv. Benrinnes is not often seen as a single malt, but it is in high demand from blenders as it was always listed as a ‘Top Class’ malt. Everything is run through worm tubs which are kept very cold, adding weight and meatiness to the spirit. A wide spirit cut (73%-58%) also plays its part in creating a robust and meaty spirit.
Nose: Vibrant with rich oak and dried fruits; date, prunes, raisins , and some fig rolls. Notes of green tea leaves, and vanilla too.
Palate: Sweet barley, honey and a hint of pepper is followed by sherry fruit notes. A medium length malty, peppery dry finish
