Benriach 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Damaged Gift Box
This four-cask matured, extra-aged Benriach was first offered in 2018 and now debuts in Australia. Matured in a combination of Bourbon, Virgin oak, Pedro Ximénez sherry and red wine casks, Head Distiller, Rachel Barrie describes it as full of candied peel, honeyed malt and barley sugar flavours. 46% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Rich, textured and complex, there is a glorious clarity to the sugars and fondant vanillas. Even the spices seem happy... without creating too many waves.

The nose offers tangerines, milk chocolate, and spicy vanilla. Peaches, Brazil nuts, raisins, dates, and more chocolate on the palate, with red berries in the background. The finish is medium in length, with cocoa powder and ginger. Not available in the U.S.
