This Benrinnes 17 years old from 1997 was bottled in the Adelphi Selection series of the independent bottler Adelphi. A Speyside single malt distilled in 1997 and matured in refill bourbon cask 855. Bottled early 2015 at natural cask strength of 57,6% ABV, non chill filtered and with no added colour. A limited single cask release of 195 bottles.

Nose: an intriguing and quite interesting nose: Pata Negra ham with fresh figs and a sprig of rosemary becoming gradually more fragrant, possibly tarragon

Palate: quite thick and oily, a hallmark of Benrinnes, with roast chicken skin and some very vivid fruity notes, in particular new berry fruits. A hint of white pepper emerges with a drop of water and this is apparent in the taste which is sweet overall.  Good acidity and unusually salty for this make

Finish: the unctuous mouthfeel helps the fruity/oily combination continue into a long and satisfying finish
