Nose: Sweet, and perfumed. lots of spice vanilla and some flower blossom (can’t really pinpoint it) , also some grape shells, and little bit of sweet dough.
Palate: Thick, viscous, sweet entry with Demerara sugar, creamy with a Capital C , and i like that!. Fruit are also included in the package (peach and apricot compote) , honey, oak, and milk chocolate. Tannins are not very strong, also not very winey.
Finish : Chocolate, pollen, vanilla.
This is a great example of a good wine finish. It does not impose itself on the whisky, while still offering many aromas and complementing the palate. this is how i like my wine finishes. Great nose, with an even nicer palate. Definitely one of the better BenRiachs I’ve tasted
