    That's a lot of bottles from a Barrel! More likely a Bourbon Hogshead

    Tasting notes from whiskyfun.com

    Benriach 24 yo 1990/2014 (50.2%, The Single
    Malts of Scotland, bourbon, cask #100142, 315 bottles) Colour: white wine. Nose: the wonders of old refills! This is
    fresher than most others, more delicate, and yet it’s no fruit bomb, as if the
    longer ageing had just made it more, yeah, delicate. Funny notes of poiré (pear
    cider), then marshmallows, tangerines, blueberries and the lightest marzipan. As
    Art Blakey would have said, it’s whispering low but you can still hear it. With
    water: a touch of farminess. Mouth (neat): not that delicate anymore, and even
    rather spicy, beyond the crisp fruitiness. Oranges and barley water, pink
    grapefruits, a touch of ginger and nutmeg from the oak. With water: a fruit
    salad, with both fresh and tinned fruits. Finish: medium length. More fruits in
    soft spices. Comments: not quite wow, but very hey hey (diving to new lows here,
    S.) SGP:651 - 87 points.
