These Cadenhead Benrinnes...naked, in the buff, absent of fancy sherry clothes, which is the way nature intended. Hefty spirit, oily, characterful... I don’t think I’ve found a bad one. Another great one, this is. Drinks well at such a big abv, which is a great sign to me. I keep reaching for it. Guilt free, old school, crushable.
Oranges, polish, fat spirit, marzipan. Big and bold, but accessible.
Easy going for the abv. Creamy, fat and oily. Full and great mouthfeel. Very good here. Dunnage, bung cloth, Clementine, mandarin...I don’t generally love orange notes, but it really works here. Almost dusty or antiquey.
Long, fruity, oily, orange polish, varnish, I hesitate to say wax, but a fatness for sure. Spice picks up, but in perfect balance. Really great.
