BENRIACH 12 ans 2007 Sherry Oloroso 61,5%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56662

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

Located just a few miles from Elgin, Benriach is surrounded by famous distilleries, with the Longmorn distillery heading the list. With their austere appearance, its buildings make a stark contrast to the very fruity and generous character of its single malt. This bottling boasts a strong personality and takes us back to an era in which many single malts in the Speyside region were often lightly peated. And yet, refusing to be confined to the nostalgia of times gone by, it generously invites us to explore particularly complex olfactory and gustatory lands that presage a radiant future.

the unctuous first nose is a combination of malted barely, acacia honey and dried fruit (almond). Allowed to breathe, it becomes vegetal (sage), heady (hyacinth) and spicy (nutmeg). The dynamic attack is herbaceous (straw) and powdery (cocoa). The beautifully saline mid-palate gradually takes us to breathe in the oaky aromas of the distillery warehouse. With a velvety mouthfeel, the finish is rustic (worked soil), floral and mentholated.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaz
  • Nose : both firm and unctuous. A subtle mix of malted barley, acacia honey, fresh walnut and almond, the initial nose reveals incredible depth. Allowed to breathe, apricot and aromatic plants (verbena, sage) bring even more nobility to the aromatic palette. To really make an impact, it then becomes increasingly heady (hyacinth, rose poivrée) and spicy (ginger, nutmeg).
  • Palate : clean, full of energy. The superbly herbaceous (straw, barley) attack is also slightly earthy, almost peaty and very liquoricey (black). Notes of turmeric and cocoa powder then bring lots of charm to a mid-palate that is also delicately salty. At the end of the palate, the oloroso sherry’s influence is underscored by dried fruits (date, fig). In the background, noble cask flavours bring us into the distillery warehouses.
  • Overall : long, concentrated. The start of the finish is just as evocative as the end of the palate, inviting us on a rustic, countryside journey. Flavours of freshly worked soil and wild flowers appear in perfect harmony with spearmint. Becoming increasingly oily, the mouthfeel has a wonderful velvety softness. The retro-nasal olfaction is then very fruity (apple, grape) and roasted (tobacco). A true ode to malted barley, the empty glass gets straight to the point.

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
