BenRiach 21 Year Old Tawny Port Cask Finish
70cl, 46% abv
Matured in the traditional style in American Bourbon barrels, this whisky is then "finished" in Tawny Port hogsheads sourced from the Douro region in the north of Portugal. During this second period of maturation, the whisky derives a rich, red fruit taste distinctive to the Port hogshead.
Colour: Rich amber with a copper glow.
Nose: A perfect balance of fresh cranberries and warm white pepper develops to a combination of tart raspberries and boiled candy.
Palate: Delicious toasted oak spices and hints of orange peel develop to a lively contrast of wild red berry compote and sour cherries, followed by a rich stewed barley character.
