From the guys at Little Brown Dog this glorious little Benrinnes is exactly right for this cold snap! Cask strength and a wonderfully balanced sherry finish. Benrinnes has a massive demand for blenders and does not have any front-line malt release, a tripled distilled spirit again using worn tubs but run at a very cold temperature to create more weight and meatiness into the spirit. Distilled in 2012 and bottled this year at a natural cask strength of 55.4% ABV drawn from a refill oloroso sherry cask.
The nose is all tinned stewed strawberries and custard with a good cedar backbone. Palate is clootie dumpling and dried tropical fruits with a fantastically full mouth feel. The finish is fresh citrus and soft spice, pink peppercorn and cinnamon being framed by the cedar back bone.
We do not have much of this so please get in-touch if you would like one, its first come first serve.
