    This was distilled 2 years before BenRiach’s own malting was decommissioned, and when they were not into the peated market yet. It’s a very light-bodied and elegant whisky. However, wood is slightly overpowering and in some eyes that can be a sign of off-balance. I was underwhelmed.

    [78-82] I'll gladly welcome another dram.

    N 26
    Creamy vanilla. Lemon zest. Fresh hay. Wood shaves. Fruits are there but very shy. Spiky alcoholic nose despite the age, unlikely to guess it’s 25+ years if I was in a blind tasting.

    20 mins: Slowly getting some tropical fruits (mangos, pineapples). Barley sugar. A whiff of white rabbit candy. Increasingly creamy.

    P 24
    Woody & spicy. Fruits (red apples) are more open on the palate. Also, slightly dry peppery spices mixed with wood shaves and chilli flakes. A touch of filtered honey. Mild oak bitterness around the edges towards the end.

    F 23
    Mid-short finish. Malty and oaky. A very mild touch of fruits lingering. A hint of toasted oak.
