This Benriach The Original Ten Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured in three cask types for at least ten years, resulting in a smooth and well-rounded whisky with layers of fruit, spice, and vanilla.

Description

Nose

Orchard fruits: Expect aromas of ripe pears, nectarines, and apples. Some reviewers also pick up on hints of melon and citrus, like honeydew or clementine.

Honey: This is a common note in whiskies matured in bourbon casks, adding a touch of sweetness and floral character.

Vanilla: Another contribution from the bourbon casks, vanilla adds a creamy and comforting aroma.

Oak: The influence of the oak casks can come through as subtle hints of wood spice, cedar, or even a touch of toast.

Possible subtle smoke: A very faint hint of smoke might be detectable by some tasters. This is likely due to the distillery’s use of floor malted barley, which can impart a touch of smokiness.

Palate

Creamy orchard fruits: The fruity notes carry over from the nose, with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Imagine biting into a ripe pear or nectarine.

Malt sweetness: The malted barley adds a touch of natural sweetness to the whisky.

Vanilla and spice: The vanilla and spice notes from the nose translate to the palate, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, or white pepper. Depending on the batch, some tasters may also pick up on baking spices like cloves or ginger.

Nutty notes: A subtle nuttiness, like almond or marzipan, can sometimes be detected in the background.

Finish

Smooth and warming: The finish is generally described as smooth and slightly warming, with lingering notes of fruit, vanilla, and spice.

Touch of oak: The oak influence might become more noticeable in the finish, adding a touch of dryness or tannic grip.
