BENRINNES 23 ans 1997 Conquête Hid.


Distilled on August 15, 1997, this expression matured until December 2020 in a second-fill bourbon cask before being finished for one month in an Oloroso sherry cask. Extremely well-balanced and particularly serene, the aromatic and flavorful profile of this Benrinnes gracefully oscillates between a surprisingly youthful freshness with malty and herbaceous notes and matured fruity and honeyed tones.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Bright gold

Nose : Fine, balanced. Very indulgent (brioche, raisin cake), the initial nose then evolves towards a more medicinal (balm) and herbaceous (cut hay) register. Upon aeration, linden honey, heady flowers (mimosa, broom), praline, and dried nuts highlight the influence of Oloroso sherry. Gradually, noble spices (cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg) and vanilla scents perfume the air, providing vitality to the aromatic palette.

Palate : Elegant, delicate. Beautifully herbaceous (cut hay), the palate is also marked by notes of beeswax and exotic fruits (pineapple, kaffir lime). Lactic (coconut, almond), the mid-palate fully expresses numerous aromatic herbs (sage, verbena, chamomile). Lavender honey and cocoa beans gently envelop the taste buds. The back of the palate is spicy (ginger, pepper), deeply malty (porridge), and creamy (toffee).

Finish : Long, serene. At the beginning of the finish, fresh fruits (pear, white peach) harmonize perfectly with tertiary (moss, chestnut) and heady (orris, lily) flavors. The very end of the palate combines vanilla and praline. In retro-olfaction, malted barley returns to the forefront as linden honey, citrus zest (mandarin), and hints of roasting (coffee) gradually take over. The empty glass reveals subtle chocolate and fruity aromas (mirabelle plum, quince).
