Benriach - Batch 3

No monkeying around, the third batch of Benriach bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company is utterly bananas! If you're wondering why this chimp champ of a whisky is getting so many puns, it's because the label shows the origin of the phrase "Monkey Shoulder". You see, turning the barley on a traditional malting floor (like the one Benriach has recently started using again) was a tough, labour intensive job that would sometimes result in the maltster developing a hunch, affectionately known as the aforementioned "Monkey Shoulder".

This is a release of 103 chimply spectacular bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, blended malts, blends and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Creamy porridge, orange slices, raspberries, marzipan and dignified oak.

Palate Big entry, Sherried character with oodles of vanilla, almond and nuts to savour.

Finish Leather, a hint of peat, cocoa and just a little strawberry jam.

Overall A well-rounded, grown up, juicy dram to enjoy whilst sat in your favourite chair. It will make you smile.

Reviews for Benriach - Batch 3 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Challenging Mix of Flavors, Delicious Complexity
The nose: grapes, shoe leather, fruity.
The Palette: leather, vanilla and other favors move around in an amazing mix of unique swirling flavors.
The finish: dry leather, chewy oak, citrus - wonderful taste tingles long after becoming almost creamy warm and nut like. Potent blend of flavors that really challenge the tongue. Great fun to feel all the layers unwrap gorgeously. Love it.
