Finn Thomson - Benrinnes 2011 - 11 Year Old
" The hope was that the PX would help that inherent sweetness along whilst not overpowering that recognisable Benrinnes character. Two years on and I believe the cask has hit the sweet spot of the perfect balance between distillery character and cask influence.
Benrinnes is a distillery that can hold its own even in the most active of casks. The distillery prides itself on creating a rich and savoury flavour profile that was historically created through partial triple distillation. That production method was tweaked in 2007 but the meaty house style remains.
This cask is typical of the distillery but when I sampled it for the first time in 2020 I noticed it also had a level of sweetness that I wouldn’t have expected. So, in April 2021 I made the call to embrace that rich character and re-rack this whisky into an American Oak Pedro Jimenez cask." - Finn Thomson
