Matured in a combination of first fill Oloroso and PX casks, this sherry whisky delivers a distinctive aroma of dried fruits, raisins and bitter chocolate. At first, the nose is quite muted and featureless. After adding a few drops of water, you can find cinnamon, walnuts and even faint hints of coffee. BenRiach 12 Sherry Wood tastes sweet, intense and aromatic with Christmas spices, dark fruits and a delicate nuttiness. The finish is peppery sweet and surprisingly long with well-balanced oak influence. It's a solid Single Malt with minor flaws in the aroma.
