    lovely Benriach with a lot of complexity for its relative young age! It can handle a fair bit of water to fully blossom and reach its full potential!
    • Nose

      almond nuts, floral (violets), young leather, lemon zest.
    • Taste
      88 88
      dry arrival, followed quickly with floral and sweet (honey) tones, citrus, savory. This is nice enough on its own, but we're not done yet as it develops further with some salty licorice, combined with some more fruity notes (peach, ripe red apples and apricot) in a thick, chewy and syrupy mouthfeel. Yummy!
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium long. the thick and chewy mouthfeel slowly die in a dry ending, which interferes with a bit of a harsh nip.
