Tasting Notes

"The Benriach Original 10 hits all the right notes for a straightforward, enjoyable Speyside single malt. It's light and toasty on the palate, with hints of green apple, lemon peel, and cereal. It also boasts a pleasant touch of brininess, and the finish hints at sweet elderflower. It has the makings of a go-to everyday dram."
