Benriach The Original Twelve, 46%

Price: $60 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This is a new recipe, replacing the old 12 year old. Rounded and warming on the nose, with stewed fruits, orange peel, and a hint of lime. Voluptuous in the mouth, with honey, milky coffee, figs, and dried fruit. Black currants, licorice, and lively spices in the finish. A really satisfying, well-structured dram.
