Review door The BenRiach

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Kleur

Gold.

Geur

Vanilla and spices with watermelon and peaches, with a rich backdrop of Madeira and oak wood.

Smaak

An avalanche of butterscotch, hazelnuts, peaches and spices, with a rich Madeira finish.

Notitie

Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in Madeira barrels, sourced from the semi-tropical Portuguese island of Madeira, hundreds of miles off the coast of north-west Africa, in the Atlantic Ocean. During this second period of maturation the whisky derives many interesting characteristics specific to the Madeira barrel.

Just 400 six-packs will be made available world-wide, and the Madeira Finish is part of the first BenRiach 'Wood Finish Series', released November 2006. The other 'finishes' included in the series are Pedro Ximenez Sherry, Dark Rum and Aged Tawny Port.
