    DESCRIPTION

    Part of the Diageo Special Releases Collection 2014.


    A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt whisky from Benrinnes, an active distillery on Speyside. A very rare malt which is highly prized by collectors, this is the first limited release from the distillers for five years. This is the latest of three limited releases to be offered by the distillery, beginning with a 21 year old Rare Malt and is interesting to compare with 23 year old 1985 released 2009.


    Distilled in 1992 and matured in ex-sherry European Oak casks, only 2,892 individually numbered bottles of this sought after malt were produced worldwide.


    The colour of amontillado sherry, it presents butterscotch to start, with hazelnuts; nose-drying, yet a hint of dried fruits and chocolate then dry fruitcake and treacle toffee. Dry overall from tannic European oak casks. Smooth, sweet, and rich; big bodied, oily and spicy, finishing with spicy fruitcake and dry sherry. A slightly burnt aftertaste, with menthol

    KNOWLEDGE BAR

    Established in 1826 by Peter MacKenzie, high on the northern flank of Ben Rinnes, the dominant peak of Speyside, near Aberlour.

    The distillery is situated in a high moorland environment with water drawn from two granite-bed hill streams, the Scurran and Rowantree Burns. There have only been three previous releases from the distillery.

    A 15 year old Flora and Fauna distillery bottling, a 21 year old 1974 Rare Malt expression and a 23 year old 1985 Special Release. All are almost impossible to find today.
