BenRiach Spectacular

Benriach 17 Year Old, Single Cask, Gaja Barolo Finish - 1991 57.5%
The whisky is a rich redwood color with slow legs. The nose shows off spicy cedar wood and cinnamon, followed by the promise of red fruit. On the palate it is extraordinarily soft and rich, with some weighty grapiness leading the flavors, followed by a small cabinet of wood spices. The heathery malt seems merely warm at first, but it winds up clearing your sinuses before finishing up with gentle sweetness. (exclusive to D&M)
