A single cask release from the Benrinnes distillery in Speyside, bottled by Signatory independent bottlers in their Cask Strength Collection range. Distilled on 18 September 2008, matured for 12 years in a first-fill ex-bourbon barrel and bottled on 11 November 2020. Only 235 bottles were produced. Naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 56.7%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Lively and unctuous. Marked by citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), the first nose is also pastry (frangipane) and spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg). When aired, fragrances of fresh nuts, rice powder and heady flowers (honeysuckle, iris) testify to the richness and complexity of the aromatic palette.

Palate: Slender, dynamic. Very coherent with the first nose, the attack in the mouth is lemony. Then, ripe fruits (pear, apple) bring a lot of freshness to an increasingly greedy, vanilla and exotic (coconut) middle and end of mouth.

Finish: Long, silky. Remarkably balanced, the opening of the finish highlights the peppery temperament of the taste palette. Flavours of star anise even add a medicinal touch to an otherwise intensely malty and mentholated aftertaste.
