SMWS Advent Day 18 - 36.142, Benrinnes, For a dignified dad

SMWS Advent Day 18

SMWS 36.142, Benrinnes, For a dignified dad, 20 years old, 57% A⊕+

16th August 1997, 190 bottles, first fill bourbon

benrinnesSMWSNose - Ripe but flinty, lemon meringue pie and cloudy lemonade. It has a really compelling depth, and floral highlights completing the astringent white character.

Body - Beautifully sweet with green apple, more meringue, hard nut toffee and chocolate ice cream.

Finish - Still playing the hard-but-soft thing well, with baked pear, liquorice toffee and lime curd.

Richly satisfying but structural, with slightly other worldly floral notes - another fantastic Benrinnes.
