BenRiach 10 Year Old Review

15th October 2018
Review of The BenRiach 10 Year Old.

BenRiach 10 Year OldThe BenRiach 10 Year Old was the first core range whisky produced from spirit distilled under The BenRiach Distillery Company’s ownership, originally launched back in April 2015, I thought I would revisit the unpeated BenRiach dram.

Bottled at 43% ABV, non chill filtered and naturally coloured, the BenRiach 10 Year Old is Classic Speyside in character. The cask formula focuses on ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks – exactly the types of wood BenRiach favour.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Green apple, a little pear, banana, some gentle sweet coconut and a little vanilla fudge.

Taste: The green apple the nose told me was coming leads, some toasted sweet malt and some vanilla infused with some delicious peppery oak. A touch of zesty lemon and and a little raisin lurking also, becomes more toffee'd after a few mouthfuls.

Finish: The lovely green apple has stayed the distance, the peppery oak becomes a little drying with a liquorice edge.

Comment: A lovely malty and fruity introduction to BenRiach without the peat and a must try when exploring what BenRiach has to offer.

SMW Score 85/100
