Benriach 'Old Malt Cask' 2001 / 19 Year Old Hunter Laing's Whisky 700ml
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Benriach distillery just near Longmorn in Speyside is famous for its fruity spirit - peaches, apricot and honey tones join banana and apples. The tasting notes from bottlers Hunter Laing & Co. speak of a complex and waxy mouthfeel, with a long and enjoyably drying finish.
Nose: Ripe notes of light fruits with soft banana, melon, and apricot, followed by soft caramel biscuits.
Palate: Waxed peels, slightly oily with stewed apples and gently herbal, earthen spice.
Finish: A robust dose of oak on the finish brings dry, peppery spice, whilst caramel sweetness remains.
