Signatory Unchillfiltered Vintage Single Malt Benriach Distillery (12 Year Old) 1994 - Matured in Hogshead Cask no -1691 and 92PF. Total 363 bottle produced.
1994 Signatory Un-Chillfiltered Benriach (Peaty) is a rare version of an unknown distillery that operates to contribute malt to several of the blends. This expression is unusual as it if very peaty. The normal malt form this distillery is very malty, almost cookie like. But this expression was peated to give it a smoky, spicy characteristic that lingers in the finish. For all you peat lovers out there is Speyside malt was made for you! 100% Bourbon casks and White Wine in color, if you had it blind you would think Islay all the way!
Nose: A rich sherried nose with brandy butter. Fairly strong sulphur notes with burnt sawdust and bread with some light fruit elements such as strawberries on top. Palate: Sulphur, cordite with devilled eggs. Chewy with a pepper taste like rocket.
