Product Description

The first official bottling from this obscure Speyside distillery as part of the Flora and Fauna series of Diageo owned Single malts and first released way back in 1991.

Part of this malt was triple distilled due to its unusul mix of wash and spirit stills but a practice now abandoned at the distillery situated on the road to the more famous Macallan distillery at the foothills of the Ben rinnes.

Nose: Savoury (meat stock cubes) to begin then rich sherry oak and some smoke, new leather, honey, fig, dark orange marmalade and caramel.

Palate: A savoury mouthfeel to match the nose along with nut brittle, leather, fig jam, dark honey flapjacks with dried apricot and peppery oak.

Finish: Chocolate truffles, figs in honey, savoury smoked nuts, earthy/forest floor notes and more sherry cask on the satisfying finish.

One of the aces in the Flora and Fauna range and a shame that most of this single malt goes towards the J&B and Johnnie Walker blends.

Worth seeking out Independent bottlings of sherry cask Benrinnes if you like your Mortlach, Clynelish and Brora for a more savoury edge to sweet sherry casks.
