Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets oranges.
  • Nose : fin, précis. Il oscille dans un premier temps entre des notes végétales (lierre, orge maltée), des épices (curry) et des fruits noirs (cassis, cerise). Les levures, les zestes d’oranges et de nouvelles épices plus douces (cannelle, cumin) prennent le relais avant qu’il ne devienne terreux, minéral (goudron) et confit (reine-claude, mirabelle).
  • Palate : droite, ferme. Bien campée sur ses épices (poivre, muscade, cardamome), elle fait preuve de beaucoup de tonicité. Le milieu de bouche est floral (vétiver, géranium). Elle devient de plus en plus gourmande (abricot, gelée de pomme). Le gingembre frais et la racine de ginseng montrent une autre facette de son caractère épicé.
  • Overall : longue, pleine de quiétude. Elle reprend les notes minérales du nez (ardoise, schiste) ainsi que les notes florales de la bouche (pétale de rose). De noirs ses fruits sont devenus rouges (fraise, framboise à l’eau de vie) et ses épices ont gagné en fraîcheur (basilic, coriandre). La rétro olfaction est chocolatée et réglissée.
The brand

The brand

Rather unjustly, Benriach was, until just a few years ago, relatively unknown, but it hasn’t ceased to make up for lost time. Indeed, this distillery has, for many decades, had a huge amount to offer and has proven this time and time again since being bought in 2004. Its warehouses are bursting with all sorts of sherry butts (Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez, etc.), new American oak casks, ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, as well as casks previously used for wine, rum, madeira, port and even Rioja! This Speyside single malt is entirely worthy of the interest it has garnered from master blenders since its creation. Find out more
