- Appearance : pale yellow.
- Nose : rich, expressive. A thick fog of smoke and ash dissipates to reveal aromas of distillation (pear, cereals, tar). It gradually finds its balance and reveals aromas of cut hay, peppermint and salty notes.
- Palate : lively, energetic. This time round the order is reversed. First come green malt, cut hay, hazelnut and salt. Next, disinfectant, camphor and white pepper ensue. Finally, wet soil and ash make an appearance.
- Overall : long, dense. Smoke is omnipresent here. Spiced (fresh ginger, clove), it expands into honeyed notes. The retro-nasal olfaction is floral (lime blossom).
- 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
