Benrinnes – Batch 1 – That Boutique-y Whisky Company – 48.9%
Fairly dark golden in colour. Sweet, heavily sherried nose, plump sultanas and nuts, top quality stuff.
The palate is huge, one of the biggest sherry monsters I’ve had yet, it must have come from an excellent first fill PX cask. An oily goodness covers the mouth with spices warming the back of the tongue.
The finish is long with a slow warming heat covering your chest. The slightly lower ABV makes I smooth and easy to drink straight. That, along with the way the palate feels tends to lead you to think that this bottle contained fairly well aged whisky.
A top dram that any sherry fan will completely love. It’s got to be well in to the 90’s for score.
