    The Hepburn Benriach has a soft nose. Fruity and compote: gooseberry, rhubarb, strawberry - everything under a meringue hood. In addition, some shortcrust pastry and a touch of oak spice.

    The second nose is spicier, less fruity. The fruit flavors and the shortcrust pastry combine to form a tart - without meringue.

    On the palate it is alcoholic, then spicy, then grainy. There is hardly anything left of the fruit compote; a mu of smoke occupies the rear aroma cookie. If it weren't for that slight meringue sweetness, I wouldn't think this dram was the same as the one I was holding under my nose.

    Aftertaste: medium length, some sweetness, grain and oak.

    Second sip: At first some fruit, but then immediately intense oak spice, paired with a little sweet smoke.

    Second aftertaste: decongestant following the second palate impression.

    Tip: Hold your trunk in the glass while drinking, tasting and relishing. Then there will be something with the fruit compote.

    Classic sherry whisky with comparatively light sherry notes at an affordable price

      Wonderful nutty and buttery flavors, hazelnut, like a crumble with steamed / boiled down fruits

      Chocolate finish with clotted cream, becoming a bit bitter but still okay
