BenRiach 15 year (1999/2015) 55.1%
Cask no 44016, bottle 163 of 208
- Nose – Warm cinnamon, pears, butter pecan, soft rum, apple crisp… think warm butterscotch
- Palate – Very approachable – a little nutty, vanilla and cream “I’m in my happy place now”… imagine that butterscotch now generously poured over a high quality rich high-fat vanilla ice cream
- Finish – Quite pleasant with light dancing nutty spice
The only problem? It was gone too quickly!
On the bottle, it was described as:
Green apple skins and pears complemented by a lively barley character, all warmed by a gentle spice finish with overtones of almond and vanilla.
Here is what the Manitoba Liquor Mart has to say:
EXCLUSIVE to Manitoba Liquor Mart! This specially selected product has been resting in a first-fill Bourbon cask in the famed Scottish Speyside region from 1999 until its bottling in April, 2015. On the nose a sweet floral oak note explodes to heather-honey, lemon, apples and poached pears, all of which is surrounded by the richness of dark vanilla pod, toasted coconut and notes of crème brûlée. On the palate, green apple skins and pears are complemented by a lively barley character, all warmed by a gentle spice finish with overtones of almond and vanilla.
