In fact, I planned to finish the posts related to the trip to Scotland with William Grant’s & Sons. However, the weather significiantly worsened, even it was snowing but happily everything has already melted. In these circumstances, I missed my recent vacation in countries where the temperature does not fall below 30° C. There was nothing else to do just to open the bottle that I bought there of BenRiach 1988 Limited Release Generations Singapore Exclusive. To the Dufftown visit I will come back later.

I wrote about BenRiach Distillery in the post of BenRiach 1985 Limited Release Tokyo International Bar Show. I have also reviewed BenRiach 12 years old. Today I have in my hand single cask bottled specially for Singapore. Cask No. 4423, previously used for ageing the Italian wine Barolo (Barolo Hogshead). Distilled in 1988, bottled in November 2010, mine is 61 out of 269. 54,8% ABV. Natural colour and unchillfiltered. Bravo.

C: deep amber with dark orange glow,

N: vanilla, biscuits, figs, dates, candied oranges, tangerines, orange peel and freshness, in depth there is also ginger and light sweetness,

T: developing rapidly, it is quite oily, lots of oranges, candied orange, orange peel, fairly sweet, then there is ginger, something like quince and delicate bitterness,

F: quite long with a slight bitterness.

During the tasting I added a little water, especially since we have a 54.8% ABV. After that single malt became sweeter, with a touch of herbs – in the smell and taste, in the taste more oak bitterness appeared.

Score: 90.

Very good, well balanced BenRiach, confirming recent distillery successes. Very nice reminder of hot Singapore in a situation of approaching winter.
