BENRINNES 12 ans 2011 Pomerol Finish New Vibrations Berry Bros. & Rudd


Equipped with eight Oregon pine washbacks with fermentation durations ranging from 65 to 100 hours, the Benrinnes distillery produces a single malt that is used in the composition of the famous blended scotches J&B and Johnnie Walker. Aged in a cask that previously held wine from the prestigious Bordeaux appellation Pomerol, this version has acquired a fruity complexity as well as woody aromas and flavors that not only support it but also give it great elegance.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Gold with pink reflections.

Nose : Rich, heady. Immediately, the influence of Pomerol wine is revealed through red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant). With aeration, chocolatey and finely wooded scents (oak) structure an increasingly spicy aromatic palette (nutmeg, cinnamon).

Palate : Rich, ample. Behind a very slight licorice reduction, the palate reveals floral flavors (violet candy, lavender) with remarkable precision. More malty and slightly bitter, the mid-palate gives way to increasingly fruity notes (apricot, melon).

Finish : Long, velvety. Fruits have taken the lead: lychee, wild strawberries, white peaches, and apricots. The aftertaste hints at flavors of dried fruits (almond, chestnut) and praline. Very dense, the empty glass has come significantly closer to the distillate.
