The BenRiach dsitillery is located in the heart of malt whisky country - Speyside in Scotland - and it displays the traditional charm of of a Speyside distillery. Established in 1898 and built by John Duff, BenRiach is one of the few distilleries with its own on-site floor malting, and draws its water from the nearby Burnside Springs.
BenRiach whiskies are 'classic Speyside' in character - fresh and lively, capturing warm oak spices, green apple, dried apricots, peach and banana with subtle touches of aniseed, lemon zest and barley. Very enjoyable, award winning whiskies.
Nose: A fresh and lively combination of crisp green orchard fruits, fresh ginger and hints of tangerine. It mellows to creamy vanilla with a delicate note of mint and a gentle twist of citrus, all held together with a sweet barley back note.
Taste: Warm toasted oak spices flood through green apple skins and dried apricots, ripening to hints of peach and soft banana. Subtle touches of anniseed and lemon zest create a contrasting edge to the fruit and add an intriguing character to the long crisp barley finish.
