Notes on Benriach 21 Year Old: 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. 90 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020
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. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Spring 2018)
Notes on Dewar's 18 Year Old: Dewar’s, for one reason or another has become extremely popular amongst American whisky imbibers. Perhaps it is their preference for lighter tasting beers that extends into their tastes for Scotch? This 18 year old release from the makers of one of the best-selling scotch in the world adds to Dewar’s already impressive portfolio of blends. Key malts include Aberfeldy, Macduff, Royal Brackla, Craigellachie and Aultmore. Note that this is a 750ml bottle as opposed to the 700ml format commonly found in Australia.
Other reviews... sublime grain at work here. That is the key to the blend. Finding one that can both absorb and reflect the malt at work... and it does here almost to perfection. 40% Alc./Vol. 96.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
