Benriach 12 yo Sherry Wood

by Oliver Klimek on May 12, 2012


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Raisins, apples, toffee, polished wood, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Palate: Raisins, stewed apples, poire belle Hélène, caramel, vanilla, tea, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly dry.
Overall: This sherried whisky is a bit on the dry side which adds an interesting dimension to the fruity base spirit.

Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Tasted blind for the Malt Manics Awards 2011, re-tasted for notes.

Although it is from a couple of years ago, thanks for the review! There is very little info about this expression available online, despite its relatively low cost (and apparent good quality). I just received a bottle of this expression a few weeks ago, and find it to be a nice, gentle, sherried dram. It went over well with most of the inexperienced malt drinkers who shared it with me the night we first opened it.
