24 Year Old Single Malts of Scotland
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Speciality Drinks Ltd
This 24-year-old Single Malts of Scotland bottling comes from one of Diageo's workhorse distilleries, Benrinnes. Matured in a single hogshead, this is lively with notes of refreshing lemon oil, stewed fruits and savoury dark chocolate.
My goodness, it’s perfect whisky, if you like them bright. Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Complex, intriguing nose that begins with toffee popcorn, vanilla sugar and honey-soaked sponge cake, then adds a layer of citrus aromas with orange and lemon, as well as a fresh floral note.
Palate: Rather lively on the palate, with fresh and stewed-fruit notes, a touch of lemon oil that cleans and refreshes, ending with more savoury notes of tobacco, dark chocolate and espresso.
Finish: Rich chocolate that coats the palate.
Comment: Plenty going on with this whisky. You think it’s sweet, then fresh fruit arrives. You think it’s fruity, then darker, richer notes appear. I like it a lot, but I’m struggling to pin it down!
