Barry Stein and Barry Bernstein have gotten their hands on some unusual casks, and this 12-year-old Benrinnes is one of them; it’s just too bad they have to add a small amount of Canadian single malt to the cask (by law) and thus can’t use the distillery name on the bottle. The nose is strong and slightly peppery, but simple and clean with a slight hint of lemons and herbs. The taste is spicy yet balanced, very smooth and buttery, and the finish is hot, lingering, and soothing.
