This is a significant release of Benriach. It is the first core release made from whisky distilled after the company was taken over by Billy Walker and his consortium. A soft, supple and juicy single malt bottled at 43%.
Warm toasted oak spices flood through green apple skins and dried apricots, ripening to hints of peach and soft banana. Subtle touches of aniseed and lemon zest create a contrasting edge to the fruit and add an intriguing character to the long, crisp barley finish.
