Benrinnes 15 yo Darkness! Oloroso And PX Finish

by Oliver Klimek on May 18, 2014

Oloroso Finish

52.9%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Copper
Nose: Red currant, strawberry jam, orange and lemon zest, milk chocolate, cinnamon, hints of cardamom.
Palate: Strong oloroso notes with orange zest, mixed forest berries, a hint of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, light toffee and mild spices.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: The sherry influence here is very strong, but Benrinnes is one of the few malts that can take this. This is excellent.

Rating: 89/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

PX Finish

53.3%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dak copper
Nose: Quite shy, hints of dried fruit, Christmas pudding, cloves and cardamom.
Palate: Prunes, dried figs, cassis, lemon zest, hints of beef stock, cocoa, cloves and cardamom.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly picy.
Overall: The nose does not give away very much, but on the palate the dried fruit aromas of the Pedro Ximenez sherry are very pleasant.
