Benrinnes - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
My very good friend Steve (@steveprentice) sent me on this sample of Benrinnes from That Boutique-y Whisky Company
There's some very much lovely notes in here but i'm overwhelmed by a rubbery note that reminds me of the kids gym rubbers for school which really disappointed me.
The whisky is drinkable but it does have that rubbery note in it.
Now sold out although Batch 2 is now available from Master of Malt.
my first thought when nosing this is that my mouth watered, theres some really nice fruit notes in here, juicy plums, toffee apples and caramel covered apple and blueberry pie, the caramel then goes quite treacley and stronger. Theres a hint of rubber shoe soles (school gym rubber) in there that doesnt quite fit with the sweetness of the fruit and caramel but not enough to distract from the rest.
not as fruity as the nose would suggest, the rubber shoe soles are there a lot stronger and it's a more bitter kind of fruit, like overriped plums in lemon juice.
treacle and school gym rubbers.
