My son had made lunch and subsequently he served a dram I have not tasted before and from a bottler I have not tasted anything from before.
This is a whisky you have to be really patient with. You are greeted with a serious alcohol puff and it burns when you get it in your mouth. Yes, it is 58.6%, but with 10 years behind it, you might expect a somewhat more round experience.
Leave it in the glass, give it some water. Then you get a different experience and it pulls it to another level of taste.
Benrinnes is a Speyside distillery and you get the classic flower notes, but it is a warm flower meadow 😉
Rauff & Fagerberg is a very young Danish company, founded in Odense, in April 2020, by Jørn Rauff and his wife Karina Fagerberg.
I have not been able to find a website for them, but I can see on instagram that there are several bottles to choose from.

Definitely a whisky you need to give time and preferably also some water to open it up. It’s not a whisky I would give someone new to the whisky game. Someone who has tried the whiskies that burn in the mouth and can hold it some time in the mouth will definitely be able to have a pleasure with this whisky and it will be a dram that can last for a while.
