Interesting fact… Benrinnes 1997 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Benrinnes 1997 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: A nutty nose. Cake icing and sharp kiwis.
Palate: Advent calendar chocolate, milky and sweet. Slightly hot, though apple juice notes cool it down quickly.
Finish: Apples and pears (the fruits, not stairs).
Overall: Lovely stuff. Well balanced.
