    Benriach 41 yo 1968/2010 (51%, OB from Speyside to Kobe  for Bar Main Malt, hogshead, cask #2709, 104 bottles)
    Colour: deep gold. Nose: look, I had the previous 1970 at 92 points but
    after having nosed this 1968, I simply had to downgrade it a bit
    because THIS is the sugar. And utterly perfect fruitiness blending with
    tiny phenolic, mineral and oily notes that can only make us think of a
    great Montrachet. All that is quite unbelievable and only the very best
    1976s can match this in my opinion. High high high. Mouth: simple and
    evident. Tropical fruit juice with just hints of spices that make it all
    extremely elegant and light (which is the opposite of weak or thin in
    this context). A sylphlike fruity profile, it’s impossible not to love
    it. Finish: medium long, extremely fresh, wonderfully fruity and
    miraculously un-oaky. Comments: one of the unbeatables. I know those
    notes were short but mind you, there were only 104 bottles! SGP:751 - 93 points.

    【First】: Fruit feeling bursting faint (++) White peach (+++) Lychee (+) Rose (++) Hint of red burned burnt barley Caramel coated bitter chocolate Dead leaf cigar tip 【 Middle】: The body is solid in the bottom and spreads in the slightly viscous oral cavity (+) Coating of the white peach rose that penetrates into the tongue with a sense of connection to the finish (++) 【Finish】: The alcoholic feeling is unified and the fruit feeling of sharp nose escape is excellent burning wood with excellent shiny finish - Make flavored lumps in front of wheat throat and enjoy a superb Benrift flavor for several minutes
