Benriach 32 yo 1976/2008 (50.3%, OB, hogshead, cask #2014, 271 bottles) Star5.jpg Colour: pale gold. Nose: there’s more happening in this one than in the 1977, even if the overall profile is rather similar. Emphatically fruity (same notes of tangerines and bananas but also passion fruits and mangos here), more herbs as well (dill, mint, coriander) and whiffs of fresh pastries, orange blossom and touches of leather. This one is exceptionally aromatic but never ‘heavy’. A wonderful cask! Mouth: superb attack! Wonderfully citrusy (lemon marmalade, kumquats, tangerine liqueur), going on with notes of peppermint and coriander (even a little savory), with the spices soon to kick in (curry, Szechuan pepper). Constantly fresh and lemony. With water (even if water is probably not obligatory here): a little more on orange zests. Exceptionally good. Finish: long, fresh, superbly fruity, even if less exuberant than at the attack. That’s good news actually, otherwise it would have been a little tiresome ;-). Comments: one of these great old Benriachs, enough said. SGP:641 – 92 points.

Couleur : Or



Nez:
Attaque sur la vanille, la noix de coco et le miel.



Le nez évolue
ensuite vers les fruits exotiques typique de ce millésime: ananas,
mangue, passion, melon.



Tous les arômes sont
parfaitement fondu, une belle balance bois/fruit et une fraîcheur
magnifique pour un whisky de 32 ans.



Au 2éme nez quelques
notes vineuses apparaissent.



Bouche:
En bouche même scénario, d`abord les saveurs du bois: vanille, coco
et miel qui évoluent ensuite vers les fruits exotiques: passion,
papaye, goyave.



La finale est moyenne
sur de belles notes de d`épices.



Cette 4éme release
officielle de BenRiach 76 est moins exubérante que les autres
versions mais toujours aussi excellente.
