From all the way back in 2008 arrives this splendid Speyside whisky from the Benriach Distillery. This single cask malt was distilled in 2008 and has been in a deep sleep for 12 years in oak casks, before being bottled in March 2021 by independent bottlers Duncan Taylor. This was bottled at cask strength at 54.7% abv, and is free from both chill filtration and artificial colouring.Only 304 bottles of this expression are available, so get your hands on one of these quickly before they all go!
The nose gives off subtle hints of macerated fruit, crème freche, and vanilla fudge. On the palate one can find wood spice, wafts of cinnamon, apricots and barley. This culminates in a medium finish, with notes of caramelised biscuits, toasted oak, and oatcakes.
