Description

The UDV/Diageo Flora & Fauna range, another creation from that wunderkind, Mr Mike Collings.  This series was to be a showcase of the “other distilleries” that UDV, now Diageo, that were not included in the Classic Six.

And once again, it came out of the early 1990’s, an era where single malts were still out of fashion.

For many years, this Flora & Fauna malt was the only official release from Benrinnes.  Thankfully today, the indie bottling trade has been able to get a regular supply, so a hidden malt no more.

First released in 1991, the house style can be described as meaty with burnt rubber.  And funnily enough, this is what the blendeds wanted.

From WhiskyMate, “Medium on the finish, with the trademark savoury and meaty hints that one would associate with a Benrinnes shining through from start to finish and being complemented by some oak and cinnamon.  A rather well-balanced and delicious representation of what Benrinnes is capable of and it is further proof that sherry casks and meaty malts make for a wondrous pairing. The mouthfeel is generally oily with a touch of dryness at the end”.
