A favourite of blenders, our team at The Whisky Shop are delighted to be offering another Benrinnes 10 Year Old. The sixteenth batch, this is a release of just 435 bottles. This expression was finished for nearly 2 years in ex-Oloroso sherry casks, and has yielded a strength of 56.8% abv. Distilled in December 2010, Benrinnes are known for a wide spirit cut (73%-58%) which keeps the spirit robust and weighty.
This is the sixteenth batch of the Benrinnes 10 Year Old. Expect aromas of prunes, raisins, dates, and a little hint of almonds. The palate is sherried but not overwhelmingly so, with toasted oak notes. The finish is sweet and delicious, a harmony of festive spices and liquorice.
