And surprisingly it may be the best Benriach I have tasted.
What complexity! The nose is changeable, twirling, playful. What a delight.
Delicate nose, far from the exotic aggressiveness of some 1976s.
Very scalable, let it air out.
Very fresh at first, with a nice here of mint and pepper.
Then a magical whiff of pomegranate. Black Grappe.
Zest of lemon, orange. Then the flesh of the orange.
Then we evolve on the exotic, the passion fruit, the mango.
What an evolution!
We follow with pineapple, wood, heather honey.
In the mouth it is more classic, even if very very good.
Exoticism, passion fruit, guava, pineapple.
Honey, spices, wood. Salt and spray. It is very oily.
Exuberant finish on exotic fruits.
Passion fruit above all, then mango.
Black pepper. A real fruit salad.
