BenRiach 2005 (cask 2565)

BenRiach 12 Year Old 2005 (cask 2565) The first of a set of reviews of Benriach batch 14 single casks, although these have just been released they already seem to have been snapped up in many specialists.

I was dreading this one, as it's matured in an Oloroso butt and i have still got a bit of an aversion to sherry cask matured drams, but this is spectacularly tasty whisky, a real treat with chantilly cream covered sticky toffee pudding, i loved this dram.

Already seems to have sold out from Specialists like Master of Malt but there may be one or two still around.

Thanks to The Benriach for the official samples.

 

Sticky toffee pudding thick with treacle and thick cut orange marmalade, softer and more toffee'd as it sits in the glass becoming more highland toffee, buttery and a hint of expensive gents cologne

Chalky, chocolate dipped butter toffees and chantilly cream,

Creamy hint of spice and dryness but still fruity
