Benriach 1999 21 Year Old Connoisseur's Choice Description
Independently bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for their famous Connoissuers Choice range, this 1999 Benriach single malt whisky has spent 21 years in a refill American hogshead before being bottled in October 2020 at a sturdy 55% abv.
As always with this range, no chill-filtration has been used. Highly limited, just 165 bottles have been produced from this spectacular single cask.
Nose: Sweet citrus aromas, pineapple, honey dew melon and orchard fruits with a hint of cocoa.
Palate: smooth flavours of peach and milk chocolate lead to a slight methol edge; soft poached pear notes combine with toasted oak.
Finish: medium-bodied and sweet with lingering aniseed.
