Review by The BenRiach

Colour

Rich antique gold.

Nose

Apricot jam and warm, peppery oak hold touches of crisp grape and mellow honeydew melon.

Palate

Golden plums and nectarines balanced by contrasting waves of toasted oak and grape seed followed by a delicate back note of ground almonds and butterscotch.

Note

The BenRiach 15 years old Sauternes wood finish is matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, then finished in Sauternes casks from the Bordeaux region of France. Sauternes gives its name to an award-winning dessert wine and the finishing effect on the whisky is stunning, as the tasting notes reveal.
