BenRiach Horizons 12 year old, 50%

Price: $82 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Not satisfied with trying different levels of peating and cask types, the folks at BenRiach are also utilizing triple distillation. This expression has spent three years in oloroso sherry butts, although for me there's more a mix of honey and cream, and light orchard fruits than any overt fruitcake. The palate is clean and fresh and lifted. Good energy. £50
