BenRiach 1992 Cask No. 979 25 Year Old Review


22nd June 2018
Review of the BenRiach 1992 Cask No. 979 25 Year Old.

BenRiach 1992 Cask No. 979 25 Year OldThe BenRiach 1992 Cask No. 979 25 Year Old is one of 17 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 15 of BenRiach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Distilled on 19th February 1992 and fully matured in a Port Hogshead 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 Port cask matured whisky was bottled at 53.9% ABV, it is a limited release of 275 bottles and will be available from specialist whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt while stocks last.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sweet malt, candied orange, a touch of nutmeg and almonds.

Taste: Chewy toffee, a big fresh and slightly zesty orange, lemon and raisiny fruitiness, a lovely mature vanilla oakiness and a bit of spice.

Finish: A delicious long lingering raisin sweet fruity finish slowly fading into a mildly drying nutty oakiness.

Comment: BenRiach do like to offer whisky drinkers something off the normal beaten track and you don't come across many 25 year old whiskies which has been fully matured in a Port Hogshead cask and this is probably as good an example as you will find at this age.

SMW Score 90/100

You can find the limited edition BenRiach Single Cask releases available from specialist whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
