BENRINNES 12 ans 2010 Oloroso New Vibrations Signatory Vintage


Completely renovated in 1956, the Benrinnes distillery doubled its production capacity in 1966. Equipped with two wash stills and four spirit stills, it practiced a partial triple distillation until 2009 when it reverted to double distillation, with each wash still connected to two spirit stills. Excellently embodying the old-school style that defines this single malt’s reputation, this version refined in Oloroso sherry casks naturally evolves through fruity, floral, smoky, and malty nuances.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Old gold with coppery reflections.

Nose : Rich, powerful. Notes of black licorice, charred wood, and tiger balm provide a lot of character to the initial nose. Upon aeration, fragrances of heady flowers (iris, lily), malted barley, and wood varnish add a smoky dimension to the aromatic palette.

Palate : Lively, slender. Thunderous, the palate entry reveals surprisingly pure notes of white fruits (pear, mirabelle). In the mid-palate, fine skin tannins (botrytized grapes) envelop the palate. Then, the finish returns to malt territory.

Finish : Long, velvety. Cocoa-infused, the finish offers the enjoyment of various pastries: gingerbread, fruitcake, coffee mocha. Pleasantly malty, the aftertaste is herbaceous (lime blossom, bay leaf) and spicy (Cayenne). The end of the palate is imbued with tangy notes (grapefruit, lemon).
