our tasting notes

Nose

Dense, with sticky toffees, sweet coffee and warm fruit cake. Underneath, sugar coated almonds, raisins and oak take over, clearly displaying the quality of the oak and the PX finish.

Taste

Rich, with dark mocha, toasted nuts and caramelised figs. Followed by powerful oak, flavours of pepper, dark honey and hints of dry smoke.

Finish

Marzipan and malty honey develop in the finish. Further enhanced by dark chocolate, oak and fruit cake.

about

Initially matured in refill American oak barrels, this 17 year old from BenRiach spent a finishing period in Pedro Ximénez Sherry butts from Jerez de la Frontera. BenRiach is a revived distillery! Ask anyone 10yrs ago and it would have been muttered as maybe an Indy Bottling.

Thanks to the likes of Billy Walker and his brief ownership of the distiller, the malt has become a powerhouse Scotch. With peated and unpeated varieties winning awards in every single age statement. What a dram fine story!

Not a bad single malt

Goes well with and without water. Again a good sherry casking makes for a fruity wet whiskey.Paired with dark chocolate makes for a crackin after dinner.

This was the strongest one in the box this month. Very smooth initially but then it comes with a heavy sherry punch. I love PX and while it's a sweet seasoning it comes across as heavy spice/sherry. This one has character and perhaps it's not the easiest to approach for a newbie, it's like a classy lady - you have to approach it with respect and let it grow on you.

My First and my Favourite

I am new to the world of whiskies, and received my first whiskey loot delivery just before Easter. I am trying to get a taste for whiskey and though this was the best way. I love the packaging, the free chocolates this month (excellent!), the thoughtful tasting notes and journal.I tried this one first. Oh my, I enjoyed it. I'm very new to this, so please excuse my ignorance.It smelt of oak, with a hint of smoke. This swells into toffee/honey, with spice.The taste is strong - still sweet but with strong oak, coffee and a touch of smoke. Burns a little. Not overly complex, oak seems to dominate.Easier drinking with water, but more acidic and less enjoyable.

Great but a little simple

Really love this flavour. First sip, heaven, second sip, heaven. Third, more of the same? Yeah it's a one trick pony, but credit to it. it nails the trick.

Favourite from the box

Glad a tried this last. Was so worth the build it. Coming out of the sharpness of the Glenglass this was heaven. Like a warm hug, sherry, caramel, butter and toasted nuts. Love this dram
