Benriach 1998 Cask # 7633 Pedro Ximenez Finish
Benriach recently released Batch 10 of it's single cask whiskies, this is a wee review of one of those drams.
This is the youngest of the 4 drams from Batch 10 that i sampled, at approx 15 years, but that is certainly not a bad thing, i really enjoyed this dram especially the fruity underlying notes. This one is a real odd-ball though as it is also "triple distilled" something that does not normally happen at Benriach, giving the whisky a smoothness that realy makes it sing. I've been a bit Benriach fan for a while now and the Pedro Ximenez finishes really do add some lovely character to their whisky

Many thanks to Benriach for the official samples.
Sweet dried fruits with mixed nuts, gentle hints of rubber school gym shoes but not in a bad way, not that burnt rubber nasty smell more a gentle new rubber smell, theres a lovely sweetness underlying it with a fresh fruit salad of melon, kiwi and mango, the nose on this really works for me.
sweet dried fruits, with a kick of acetone, theres a touch of gym shoe rubber and a splattering of fresh fruit salad again with melon, kiwi and mango
touches of marachino cherry and a kick of spice and a hint of crushed almonds
