- Benriach 46 Year Old 1966 Vestige
BenRiach Vestige 46 Year Old 1966 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask #2381 distilled 21st of September 1966 and bottled 2013. 'Vestige' has been so named because it represents a moment in time, a small trace of something very special that, once lost, can never be replaced.
Limited release of just 62 numbered bottles.
NOSE: Fresh, clean, fruity components leap from the glass. Pineapple. coconut and ripe guava scents, interacting with one another to create fabulous fruit cocktail. This gives way to freshly cut meadow flowers and fine toasted oak. Very alluring.
PALATE: An explosion of ripe, luxurious fruit married alongside sweet toasted oak, topped with vanilla cream. The fruit takes centre stage with an abundance of soft white summer fruits - peaches, apricots and ripe pears. This is further enhanced with fresh coconut qualities. Exceptional length with timeless elegance.
