1st July 2019
Review of the BenRiach 2009 Cask No. 6095 9 Year Old Virgin Oak Cask Matured single cask whisky.

BenRiach 2009 Cask No. 6095 9 Year OldThe BenRiach 2009 Cask No. 6095 9 Year Old which is one of 24 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 16 of BenRiach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Distilled on 16th October 2009 and fully matured for 9 years in a Virgin Oak Cask 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 Virgin Oak cask matured whisky was bottled at 58.5% ABV, it is a limited release of 322 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: Sweet coconut and vanilla, honeycomb infused with a gentle touch of orange, some lovely timid oak spice and a little grassiness lurking in the background.

Taste: A delicious barley sugar candy sweet delivery is soon supported by vanilla, caramel, some zesty orange and lemon and a lovely touch of mouth coating oak spice.

Finish: Long, more vanilla, the oaky sugars and spices simply cling to the palate and the fruit which is gentle and slightly candied now also stays the distance.


Comment: A young and simply delicious sweet malt whisky candied expression from the BenRiach and an outstanding example of how good a combination of quality spirit and a good virgin oak cask can turn out if monitored and bottled at the right time. This shows that the BenRiach doesn't need some type of wine cask influence to be this good and if you enjoy a sweet malt you should love this.

SMW Score 92/100
