BenRiach 24 Year Old 47.4% Bladnoch Forum Bottle


BenRiach Bourbon Barrel no 5484 bottled for Bladnoch Distillery Forum, 24yo 47.4% Distilled 30th September 1985, Bottled 2nd April 2010, bottle no 76/186

Colour : Gold, beautiful colour

Nose : I really enjoy this. It’s a rather complex whisky with a lot of toffee, almonds and wet grass and the usual sweet touch from the ex-bourbon barrel.

Palate : Smooth, sweet and flowery, vanilla, not as complex as the nose but very well balanced.

Finish : Enjoyable and long, it just keeps on going

Overall: My first sip of this surprised me quite a lot. Even though I have a cold this whisky deliver great in the nose and palate. I must say this in the top three of the many forum bottlings I’ve tried over the years and during this cold winter its really nice in front of the open fire.
