BenRiach 15 yo (1991/2006), Wood Finish Series – PX, 46%

Review #498
From the series “Wood Finish Series” comes this whisky, finished in Pedro Ximinez Sherry casks, and only 3060 bottles were made. Thick and sweet in the smell. Sweet raisins and elegant oak. So rich!

So rich (again)! The oils fills your mouth and the thickness from the PX casks shines through in the taste. Dates, sweet raisins again. Some oak and vanilla shows its face in the finish. The dried fruits lingers out and leaves you with a medium to long finish.

A very nice dram, but it lacks a little complexity. It is probably the watering down that does it and kills some of the flavours that most definitely would be there if it were cask strength. And boy, I would love to try this at cask strength!! I will give this 86/100 (22/21/22/21).
