A 16yo PX cask tonight from BenRiach, sister distillery of GlenDronach, up near Elgin.
A beautiful, deep golden red hue, this dram begs you to get stuck in.
Don’t mind if I do!
Spiced stewed apples – cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla
Balsamic vinegar? Ok, maybe getting a bit carried away but there’s certainly an intriguing balance of acidity and sticky intense sweetness going on here.
It’s mouth-filling, very full bodied and thoroughly braw.
