    <tasting note> Benriach Sauternes # 1856 57,6% Nose: poorly defined fruits. Alcohol prevents you from deeply inhaling the glass. The dilution allows to release some fruits with white flesh and subtle notes of precious wood and spices. In mouth same observation, presence of sweet fruits, precision hampered by the presence of alcohol. Nice amplitude associated with the roundness and the expected fruitiness linked to Sauternes. A suitable dilution (4 pipettes for 3cl) reveals precious wood and beautiful spices. Beautiful finish on acidulous fruits and citrus fruits. Not too much sweetness here Yum .. The dilution remains sensitive a pipette too much makes the wood vulgar. There is also a bitterness that goes far behind the sweet fruits. Lonnngue and beautiful persistence on apricots WELL ripe. A good dram not complicated. Special mention for this delicious long and precise persistence. thanks julien
