BenRiach The Original Ten 10 Year Old Review

10th December 2020
Review of the BenRiach The Original Ten 10 Year Old.

BenRiach The Original Ten 10 Year OldBenRiach The Original Ten 10 year old is the new entry level single malt in the recently revamped BenRiach core range.

Matured for 10 years in a combination of bourbon barrels, sherry casks and virgin oak

The BenRiach Original Ten is bottled at 43% ABV and has a RRP of 38

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Some fresh oak, a mix of green apple, pear and just a touch of lemon. A little barley sugar and a touch of coconut

Taste: Honey, green apple and pear leads, some toasted sweet malt, a faint touch of vanilla infused with some delicious peppery oak. A late touch of zesty lemon and a little ginger joins the sweet peppery oak, becomes a little more toffee'd after a few mouthfuls.

Finish: Deliciously long, fruit and sugars along with some lovely oak spice cling to the palate for an age prolonging the pleasure.

Comment: A delicious unpeated Benriach, not a huge difference in this new Original Ten 10 year old compared to the Benriach 10 year old it replaces. It is still a lovely malty, fruity and sugared introduction to Benriach without the peat and a must try when exploring what BenRiach has to offer. For its price I highly recommend it and if you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift for a whisky loving friend or family member that wont bust the bank I am sure they would thank you for this.

SMW Whisky Score 86/100
