Benrinnes - 15 Year Old Flora and FaunaSpeyside Malt Whisky
Appearance: Deep gold.
Nose (unreduced): First impression is of rich fruit, wood and dark chocolate. Traces of beeswax and liquorice.
Nose (30%): Rich and complex. The sweet creamy notes develop a rounded sherry yet still fruit and sulphury, woody notes come through in the background.
Taste: Surprising robust for a triple distilled whisky, smooth and rich with fresh brambles and smoke.
Finish: Clean, faintly sweet and smoky.
