Benriach 1984 Cask #1051 Peated 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.

A peated Benriach finished in a Pedro Ximinez cask, even before i opened this my mouth was watering, it totally sounds like a cracker of a dram and it definitely does not disappoint, amazingly smoky and fruity this would see you through any winter night.

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 sweet peat smoke note, the fact that there's the sweet fruit salad notes are there along with the smoke reminds me Ardbeg Uigeadail but the smoke isnt as pungent and the sweetness is much more fruity, the gym rubber note from some of the other PX Benriachs is there but very very light and the fruit and smoke mix beautifully.

Palate

smoke, sweet cigar smoke and ash with a touch of gym rubber and huge blast of dried fruit and fresh fruit salad

Finish

this has a gentle grated ginger kick with more fresh fruit
