1st July 2019
Review of the BenRiach 2005 Cask No. 3791 14 Year Old Port Pipe matured single cask whisky.

BenRiach 2005 Cask No. 3791 14 Year OldThe BenRiach 2005 Cask No. 3791 14 Year Old is one of 24 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 16 of BenRiach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

A peated distillation distilled on 23rd February 2005 and fully matured for 14 years in a Port Pipe it was selected by BenRiach Master Blender, Rachel Barrie as part of this latest batch of single cask releases.

Non chill-filtered and natural colour this Marsala cask matured whisky was bottled at 55.3% ABV, it is a limited release of 272 bottles and will be available from specialist whisky shops as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt while stocks last.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Caramel infused with a lovely gentle sweet peat smoke, a little vanilla and orange, some distant pepper

Taste: Deliciously juicy raisin and orange infused with equally delicious sweet peat smoke fills the mouth.

Finish: The port and peat infused sugars simply linger for an age before finally fading to leave a little pepper, a very gentle touch of liquorice and some mildly drying oak.

Comment: Loved it, a delicious peated port pipe matured dram that you would be hard pushed to better, I will be seeking out more of this for myself.

SMW Score 93/100
