Halò Single Malt Mates,
Aye, you learn something new every day lads and lasses.
Here is a guid auld expression from BenRiach. I have owned three. We visited the distillery and we had a good time doing it..
Located in the ‘Heart of Speyside’, in the North-East region of Morayshire, BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, BenRiach draws its water from the Burnside springs located underground, deep below the distillery.
Here is the whisky:
22 Year Old Dunder Dark Rum Cask 46% 70cl
Producer Brown Forman
Age 22 Year Old
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 46%
Benriach have a proud history of producing peated Speyside malt and using interesting barrels to finish their whiskies; with this release they have combined both. This 22 year old single malt was originally mature in American oak barrels before being finished in dark rum casks. The name ‘Dunder’ comes from the left over residue in rum production after it is distilled which is often used as a source of yeast.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: An intriguing, delicate floral peat smoke floods over cinnamon-spiced apple sponge. Crisp white pepper adds a gentle warmth to the nose.
Palate: Roasted apples and pears dusted with demerara sugar and lemon peel, all infused with a crisp barley sweetness and lingering wood smoke character.
I loes exotic maturations. Rum Chardonay, Port, Sherry, Italian and Tuscan wines, bring them all on…
It all adds up to possible collectability. Plus you have the added bonus of great whisky!
So I say try it, you might like it..
