BenRiach 10 Year Old Review

BenRiach 10 Year Old Over the years I've had some utterly brilliant drams from Benriach, this loveable distillery became a bit of a sample shop releasing a wide breadth of different cask styles and finishes, generally all being damn good too.

This 10 year old is on the more affordable end of the Benriach spectrum and is a combination of ex bourbon and ex sherry casks.

Describe this dram in a single word and it would be Fruity, its the note you get first when you stick your nose in and definitely the same note you get on the finish also. This is a hugely tasty dram and i'm really happy sipping this dram, and could happily sip this all day long, a most definite session dram.

Available to buy from Specialists like Master of Malt

Thanks to Benriach for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

The first thing that strikes you when you dip your nose into a glass of this is just how fruity it is, grapes, dates, and some key lime pie, some soft tinned pears in juice also, a light sprinkle of acetone and window putty also.

Palate

Tangy citrus peel and ground white pepper, more of the fruits from the nose again, grapes and creamy lime for sure, and those pears are back, soft juicy and delicious, fresh and juicy and more of that window putty (which I love)

Finish

Fresh juicy, hints of pear and spice, and that putty is still hanging around.
