Benriach 12yo Sherry Wood 70cl 46%
This luscious 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is unconventionally made using three facets of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry cask finishing, for unexpected layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice.
NOSE: Sherry cask maturation at its most fruity and luscious. Baked fruit salad with fig, pear, apricot and glacé cherry in mandarin syrup. Honey glazed flan with crème-caramel and toasted vanilla pod add to the multi-layered sweetness..
PALATE: A rich fruit cocktail of honeyed fig, baked pineapple and sultana fused with chocolate fondant and muscovado sugar, lifted by mandarin cream, ground nutmeg and vanilla. On the finish savour nectarine, candied grape and star anise, lingering into the dessert-like sherried finish.
