Limited Releases Series.
BenRiach Cask Strength Batch 1
The very first edition of BenRiach’s new Cask Strength release (2016, march 17) is classic BenRiach in style and shows BenRiach in its most natural state, cask strength, non chill filtered and of natural colour, allowing the distillery’s unique spirit to shine through. This complex single malt has a creamy, delicate taste and aroma that truly captures the BenRiach character with a combination of vanilla, fruits and sweet barley.
Tasting Notes by Benriach Distillery:
Nose: Sweet toasted oak spices interwoven with roasted orchard fruits and dusted with cracked barley. Black vanilla pods, desiccated coconut and a gentle floral note add complexity to the ripe, fruit-laden nose.
Taste: An excellent example of the delicious BenRiach character. Creamy heather honey pours over a medley of apples, pears and apricots. Subtle notes of candied peel and fresh ginger give a delicate warmth and lead to a classic combination of vanilla, toasted coconut and sweet barley in the luscious, velvety finish.
