BenRiach 2007 Cask No. 8737 10 Year Old Review


19th June 2018
Review of the BenRiach 2007 Cask No. 8737 10 Year Old.

BenRiach 2007 Cask No. 8737 10 Year OldThe BenRiach 2007 Cask No. 8737 10 Year Old is one of 17 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 15 of BenRiach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Distilled on 28th March 2007 and fully matured in a Moscatel sherry 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 Moscatel  sherry cask matured whisky was bottled at 58.9% ABV, it is a limited release of 326 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: A raisiny fruitiness, a little orange blossom, honey and a touch of marzipan.

Taste: A deliciously juicy raisin and apple candied fruitiness coats the mouth. A little cinnamon, honey and a hint of creamy chocolate.

Finish: Medium to long with the sweet fruits bittering out leaving some mildly drying oak.

Comment: It is hard to believe this is only a 10 year old cask strength whisky as it is so smooth, a fine example of a Moscatel matured whisky. If you are a fan of a Pedro Ximénez matured BenRiach then you should enjoy this as this Moscatel matured whisky is very similar in style to a PX matured whisky.

SMW Score 89/100

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