By Wilson & Morgan comes this Barrel Selection, matured in First Fill Bourbon Barrels (310202/11/12/13/15). Malty, grassy and a bit sweet in the smell. Like caramel and toffee drops. Lastly, and that’s probably just me, Happe Peaches from Haribo in the background.

Just good classic Scotch single malt whisky in the taste. Malt, baked apples and apple pie. Of course some vanilla, but also some candied oranges and light citrusy notes. Quite sweet in the finish, mixed some oak spices.

This is just a great classic Scotch single malt whisky. Great craftsmanship, bottled at 46%, so it has some power to it. Benrinnes delivers a great Bourbon matured whisky once again! A great sipper that would go perfectly with a pint! I will give this 85/100 (21/21/22/21).
