BenRiach 2008 Cask No. 5807 10 Year Old Review


22nd June 2018
Review of the BenRiach 2008 Cask No. 5807 10 Year Old.

BenRiach 2008 Cask No. 5807 10 Year OldThe BenRiach 2008 Cask No. 5807 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 10th January 2008 and fully matured for 10 years in a Sauternes Barrique. Bottled in 2018 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 Sauternes cask matured whisky was bottled at 59.7% ABV, it is a limited release of 296 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 and honeyed with an enticing fruitiness - apple strudel, apricot, peach and sultana and just the slightest touch of nuttiness hiding in the background.

Taste: Deliciously sweet honey and a little zesty citrus fruit leads, the zesty lemon is joined by peach, and again just a hint of nuttiness.

Finish: Peach has the longest staying power of the fruit, a little sweet coconut makes an appearance and the sweet honey is the last to fade.

Comment: This has obviously come from a very good Sauternes wine cask which has imparted just what you would what and expect into this BenRiach whisky. A little fiery at first at cask strength but fine after a few sips. No surprises here just what you would hope for a lovely sweet honeyed single malt with notes of peach, apricot and zesty lemon.

SMW Score 86/100
