Benrinnes 22 Years Old Hogshead 1996 Ink S.V. 70cl 56.2°

Brand : Signatory Vintage / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 23902

This edition Benrinnes 22 years old Hogshead 1996 from our Ink#1 S.V. is a limited edition of 255 bottles, selected by our experts exclusively for Le Comptoir Irlandais.

Confidentiel but appreciated by amateurs, the Benrinnes distillery is located in Aberlour in the Banffshire in Scotland where it was created in 1826. Its history was tumultuous with a succession of reconstructions and changes of owners.

Benrinnes is one of the few Scottish distilleries to perform a partial triple distillation. Its whiskies are very unctuous and marked by hints of honey and spices.

This Benrinnes was distilled in 1996 and enjoyed a maturation in Hogshead barrel for 22 years before bottling in 2019. Despite its age, this limited edition Single Cask #11699 keeps its vivacity. It has a beautiful patina and has lost none of his passion.

The whisky is rather oily, intense, malty and fruity... Our experts particularly appreciated during the selection the development of a slight acidulous note.

For a successful tasting, we advise you to let your whisky breathe. As the saying goes, one minute of breathing per year of aging.

Colour: hot gold.

Take the time to let your whisky hatch in the glass. Breathing time is necessary to take full advantage of this exceptional aged whisky.

Nose: rich aromas of butter bread! The whole is malty and pastry with beautiful hints of almond, light and splendid aromas of coconut and vanilla.

Palate: an aromatic and gourmet fruit salad. The triple distillation, so typical of Benrinnes, is very telling and deeply reflects its original character compared to classic Scotch whiskies. During the tasting, malt and fresh beer aromas develop, reminding us of the original product of Single Malt: barley. Everything is melted, oily, creamy. The aromas are composed and decompose, it's rich and exciting! Superb balance while finesse.

Finish: fine, light and very long. A whisky of high class, a character apart.
