Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or soutenu.
  • Nose : profond, complexe. Dans un premier temps, il révèle des notes de miel, de camphre, de fruits exotiques (ananas), d’épices nobles (safran, girofle) et de fruits confits. Puis, il évolue sur la noix grillée, le café et la menthe verte. Au fur et à mesure, il se montre plus terreux, enraciné (gentiane, gingembre) et capiteux (iris, oeillet).
  • Palate : fine, racée. Particulièrement exotique (passion, kaki, goyave), son attaque est voluptueuse, quasi charnelle. Le milieu de bouche se rapproche de l’orge maltée et du foin coupé. Délicieusement aromatique (verveine, menthe verte), elle fait preuve de beaucoup de tranchant et de rigueur.
  • Overall : longue, capiteuse. Avec la même ferveur exotique (grenade, ananas, banane plantain), elle se dirige progressivement vers un registre boisé et chocolaté. Sa fine amertume évoque la racine de gentiane. Pleine de vie, elle repart en terrain fruité (poire, mirabelle). La rétro olfaction est d’une gourmandise étonnante (tarte aux figues, Paris-Brest) et le verre vide hésite entre les fruits et les fleurs.
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
