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.
