    - a top painting by BenRiach
    - very impressive and substantial
    - At that time (before 2016) it was around € 75, it's worth every €!
    • Nose
      clear port wine note, smoke, spices, very intense and powerful
    • Taste
      powerful and complex body is confirmed in the taste, mix of spices, fruits, port, oak, light smoke above all; Despite 50% no alcoholic sharpness, incredibly intense taste
    • Finish
      long, pleasantly spicy finish;
      Smoke fades away slowly, very long aftertaste
