Benrinnes Distillery lies in the shadows of the eponymous mountain close by the might river Spey. An earlier distillery bearing the name was washed away by floods in 1829. The current distillery sits on safer ground and for a time employed an unusual part-triple distillation technique.
Deep, nutty aromas dominate initially. There is a jammy, intense fruit that emerges to give quince and bruised apples. The palate is unctuous with bags of apples, yellow fruit and a hint of peat. The finish is long, lingering, sweet and spicy. – Berry Bros. & Rudd
