Benrinnes is not a whisky you see often, in fact you would probably know the whisky better from where it is used as a key component - heard of Johnnie Walker?

Yes, Benrinnes is hardly seen bottled as a single malt since it is considered as one of the key essential malts to Diageo, and so most of its output simply goes into the JW blends.

As a result, not too much is known about this mystery whisky's characteristic flavors aside from its usual fruity and spicy notes, and a light to medium-bodied texture.

Unlike its PX-finished cousin, the drier, more intense and peppery Oloroso maturation has certainly made an influence here, gifting this Benrinnes with a much more zingy and edgy bite for those who particularly love Sherry.

This can be paired with pork ribs, cacio e pepe pasta or a grilled rack of lamb.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sourdough, walnuts, Peppery, Raisins

Palate: Savoury, white pepper, white grapes, black pepper, floral

Finish: Short-medium, slightly sour, floral, bright orchard fruits
