Long and drying, earthy and flinty…
Cadenhead Small Batch Benriach 2008 10yo
This tasty Speysider comes from the era when Mr Billie Walker owned and I have to say, who revitalised the distillery. This offering has been described by Cadenhead as, “long and drying, earthy and flinty” which is kind of typical of the distilleries official style.
They also note that there is a phenolic note about it, i.e. a hint of smokiness. All bourbon oak, 534 bottles released.
