BenRiach 18 Year Old 1998 Bottling Note
This is an 18 year old triple distilled BenRiach single malt, released as part of their 13th batch of single cask bottlings. It was distilled in May 1998 and bottled in June 2016 after enjoying a finishing period in a Pedro Ximénez Sherry puncheon - 670 bottles were produced.
Nose: Heavy Sherry influence here - chocolatey sweetness abound, with notes of malt loaf underneath.
Palate: Full-bodied notes of Mocha, tobacco and Christmas pudding.
Finish: Lingering coffee bean and sultana.
