Benriach The Original Ten, 43%

Price: $54 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith




This unpeated single malt updates and replaces the previous 10 year old. It presents tropical fruits, vanilla, honey, and ginger on the nose. Soft fruits, malt, and milk chocolate inhabit the creamy, well-balanced palate. Hazelnuts, drinking chocolate, and light spices surface in the medium-length finish, with just a wisp of smoke.
