An excellent single cask bottling from Speyside distillery, BenRiach.
This dram was distilled on the 10th of July 2005, and bottled on the 17th of February 2020, having been aged for 14 years in an Oloroso Sherry Butt. The whisky was originally created especially for the Dutch market.
The result is a classic Oloroso matured whisky, which offers up notes of fresh cherries, strawberries and raspberries, marzipan, toasted hazelnuts, sweet sultanas and dark oak, dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream, white pepper and some subtle mocha coffee.
A top notch dram, bottled at a warming cask strength of 58.8% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration.
Just 643 bottles were produced.
