BenRiach 17 yo (bottled 2016), Wood Finish - PX, 46%

Review #769
This is from the “Wood Finish” series, and it is finished in PX Sherry casks. Sweet dried fruits at first in the smell. Raisins, plums and vanilla. Mostly just heavy Sherry notes, but with a sweet touch.

Quite a few things happens in the taste. Burned oak, heavy dark dried fruits, hints of smoke and a bit of ashes. Also sweet, and that comes even more forward in the finish, with some more smoke hiding under the dried fruits.

Loads of flavours from the finish, and the casks from the initial maturation must have been quite burned, as it leaves quite the burned oak touch. Very delicious, and this is just good from the moment you pour, until the last flavours leaves you in the finish. I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
