Benriach 2005 (Cask 2679)
Another from a set of reviews of Benriach batch 14 single casks, released a short while back they had been snapped up in many specialists even before hitting the shelves.
I know this is very much a "if you had the chance you would have liked to have bought one" but these just dont sit around long enough to get any review out before they sell out.
Peated Benriach in a port pipe, yes please, Tasty despite the shorter finish, fruity and smoky a nice combination
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.
Chalky smoke, almost like smouldering plaster board, jammy sugary sweetness underlying like a overly jammy home made Victoria sponge, haribo foam love hearts, coal dust
Sweet and smoky orange marmalade, tangy and a little salty/coastal, sweet fruits, star fruit
Salty fruity gentle and fairly short
