Benrinnes 1996/25 years old Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask Scotch Whisky
The Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask range of Single Cask Whisky from the family-owned independent bottlers, Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers, are a very limited range from distilleries all over Scotland. All the bottles are numbered and once they are gone they cannot be replaced as they are from one-off bottlings from a single cask. The Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask Scotch Whiskies are bottled at cask strength and are all non-chill filtered.
This 25 year old single cask scotch whisky was distilled at the Benrinnes Distillery in Speyside on the 24th of October 1996, before spending 26 years in a single ex-Sherry Butt. The cask (#962101) produced 482 bottles of malt at a natural cask strength of 53.0% ABV.
The deep rich mahogany colour in the bottle shows the intense ex-sherry character of this special release. The nose has lively oloroso notes of sultanas, christmas spice, baked orange peel with touches of butter and lacquer/resin. The rich sherry character comes through luxuriously on the palate, with ginger and cinnamon spice, sultanas, prunes and oranges, backed with a very long finish.
The Australian allocation of this special release was only 18 bottles.
