BenRiach 12 year old Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Honeyed malt, peaches and cream, with subtle floral and lime notes. Dry, herbal, oaky finish with a hint of bitter chocolate. A warm-weather whisky, or as an aperitif. (Vol. 15, #1)
*Recommended* The initial delicately sweet malty aroma becomes more assertive after aeration with added scents of banana and pear. The crisp palate entry offers tastes of dried banana chips and light oak-influenced vanilla.
A nose of honey and vanilla with hints of flowers and wood introduces a mouthfull of vanilla, honey, spice, and a suggestion of milk chocolate. "Silver Medal" winner at the 2009 International Wine & Spirits Competition and the 2009 International Spirits Challenge.
