BenRiach 15 Year Pedro Ximenez Finish
Benriach // Speyside, Scotland
Coming from their non-peated, but wood finished line of whiskies (there are many styles to choose from at this distillery), this is matured initially in ex-bourbon and then finishes aging in previously used Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. As always, this is un-chill filtered and is all natural colored.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-bourbon, ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry
"This is certainly going to please those sherry whisky lovers by attacking your senses on the nose and the palate with raisins and nuts. There is a moderate amount of wood spices, particularly on the finish. The proof helps to make this whisky not too sweet, but the dried fruits stay with you to the bittersweet end. "
