Benrinnes 15 (Signatory Vintage 1997/2012 43%) Review

This is a 15 year Benrinnes aged in a refill hogshead and bottled by Signatory at 43% ABV. This was sent to me as part of a mystery review swap hence the cryptic label.

Nose: Malty and briny with a little peat and vanilla. Light fruits, subtle sherry.

Palate: Lighly peated and smoky up front – a little sweet but briny and salty as well.

Finish: Slightly bitter with some subtle smoke with the sherry dropping off.

Rating: 84/100 – Interesting dram but a little mild all around.

Value for the money: Guessing this was around $80-$100, but I wouldn’t buy this at anything over $60.
