It can be a little rarer to see Benrinnes bottled as a Single Malt, and especially one at such a wallet friendly price.
Another great bottling from Hugh, Leon and Rupert at James Eadie Independent Whisky Bottlers.
Aged in 1st fill bourbon and refill hogshead casks and bottled after 9 years by James Eadie.
James Eadie’s Single Malts come from some of Scotland’s famous and less well-known distilleries. They select only the best casks for bottling, and clearly state their age.
Inspired by The Eagle Inn, Loughborough, acquired by James Eadie 16th January 1890
First fill bourbon and refill hogsheads
One of 1018 bottles
Casks #311154, #312817 and #312824
Nose: Fresh young white grapes, stewed apples, vanilla cream, digestive biscuits.
Taste: Initially like the nose, with fresh fruit and vanilla cream prominent, before the trademark oily, meaty notes of the spirit emerge, along with stewed rhubarb and green apple.
Finish: Nice long finish, ending on apple, honey, woodspice and a hint of mint.
