Benriach 1992 Cask #986 Pedro Ximenez 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.

At approximately 21 years old this has become very refined in the glass with oodles of sweetness and fresh fruit salad, theres a real distillery character of fresh fruit and marzipan that i'm picking up throughout these drams.

Pick One up From The Whisky Exchange before they sell out

Many thanks to Benriach for the official samples.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

initially a very subtle nose that grows in the glass and becomes more sweet, theres the rubber soled gym shoes note that i quite like in these PX expressions, more of the fresh fruit tropical salad that i get with Benriach expressions and a touch of marzipan.

Palate

Loads of fresh fruit and touches of marzipan with a touch of cough medicine and vanilla cream.

Finish

quite a lot of mixed fruit and nuts, marzipan and hints of cinnamon
