    This whisky shows its strength in my mouth. Nice sweet whisky, Benriach and Sauternes has been a good combination for me so far. So I bought the bottle blindly and don't regret it after trying it.
    • Nose
      Slightly floral, marzipan, sweet, very nutty, honey, slightly mint, almost like syrup, mango ice cream, so more creamy than fruity, spice cake, passion fruit, all in all very lovely and has something of a dessert
    • Taste
      sweet start, nuts, full-bodied, vanilla, honey, then some oak comes through, thus slightly tart and a good counterpoint to the sweetness in the start
      the second sip puts a shovel on it, now there are roasted flavors with the nuts, harmonious, light acidity, also comes from the slightly exotic fruit in the mouth, in the direction of mango, but a little fermented, very tasty, I like it very much, already very creamy,
    • Finish
      the sweetness is still struggling with the tart oak, slightly salty, the dry one is gaining the upper hand, bitten grape skin, chewed hazelnuts, if you only have the taste of the skin, more and more nutty, the mango is still swinging on the palate, very pleasant
