A triple-distilled Benriach distilled in 1998 and finished in a Pedro Ximénez sherry puncheon. Bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange in July 2015, this is rich yet smooth with classic sherried notes of coffee and dark chocolate, along with a delicate sweetness – definitely one we're proud to put our name to.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Toasty and nutty, with tempting aromas of walnuts and hazelnuts, beefed up with rich mocha, bitter orange marmalade and cinnamon. A touch of raisiny sweetness from the PX barrel but not heavy or overdone.

    • Palate

      Rich, smooth texture. Lovely decadent dark chocolate cake, coffee, barrel char and sponge-cake batter, but crucially, not sweet or cloying. The palate is perked up by clove, nutmeg and fresh orange peel.

    • Finish

      Rich but not sweet, with the mocha notes adding a rich bitterness.

    • Comment

      A delightfully rich after-dinner dram that would go really well with a chocolate dessert, or alongside a coffee.

    An outstanding single malt! One of my all time favourites, but... sadly you have sold out. Please source more single PX casks like this from BenRiach!

    Quite wonderful. (Some of my reviews have been banned, - but I guess not this one) It's quite gorgeous, and I'm not usually a fan of sherried whiskies. You have to buy this!
