BenRiach 15 PX Finish

Benriach 15 PX

Price: Discontinued

Distilled/Owned by: BenRiach / Brown – Forman

Region: Speyside

46% ABV

Aged For: 15 Years

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Cask Type: Ex-bourbon, finished in PX sherry casks

Color: Dark Copper

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Stewed apples, vanilla, oak, copper, malt, and very slight sherry.

Taste: Much fruiter than the nose, thick, rich sherry, mint, oak, licorice, and caramel.

Finish: Medium length and warmth, dry cherry, raisin, and dried citrus.

Thoughts: I again think of this as Glendronach’s funky cousin who isn’t as sherry crazed. There underlying malt is unique, but I think a little more time spent in PX casks would improve this a bit.

Score: 80 out of 100
