Benriach 1994 Cask #4385 Virgin American Oak Finish Review

Benriach 1994 Cask #4385 Virgin American Oak FinishBenriach recently released Batch 10 of it's single cask whiskies, this is a wee review of one of those drams.

Benriach join a growing club of other distillers who have been using Virgin American oak to mature or finish their whisky, it really does bring out the vanilla notes in the whiskies and adds something i really enjoy.

Pick One up From The Whisky Exchange before they sell out

Many thanks to Benriach for the official samples.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Huge vanilla and creme brule influence on this, theres a fantastic underlying fresh fruit salad freshness too with melon and mango in there, the main notes are definitely vanilla though and i get a big hit of almonds and marzipan with cherry bakewells.

Palate

marzipan and sugar icing with melon and mango puree and vanilla custard

Finish

icing sugar sweet with marzipan and melon
