Benriach 1966 'Vestige' Reviews
Appearance: Bright autumn gold with warm amber reflections.
Nose: Fresh, clean, fruity components leap from the glass. Pineapple, coconut and ripe guava scents, interacting with one another to create a fabulous fruit cocktail.
Palate: An explosion of ripe, luxurious fruit, married alongside sweet toasted oak, topped with vanilla cream. The fruit takes centre stage with an abundance of soft white summer fruits - peaches, apricots and white pears. This is further enhanced with fresh coconut qualities. Exceptional length with timeless elegance.

You may expect musty old libraries for something's this age, but this is an exceptionally floral and fruity, nearing a desserty quality. A fantastic whisky that is expensive enough to make it a one time treat. I would drink a lot more if it and share it around, if only I had the means (and there were more bottles if it left)! A great whisky, a nice box and worth the cash, even though it costs as much as a very good holiday. But affording more than one can be a challenge!
The taste was round, and sweet. I could feel the drops dance on the inside of my lips, it would swurl around my tongue in it's beautiful consistance. Definately a good purchase!
