Benriach The Original Ten

Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

Tasted February 5, 2021
3.75 out of 5 stars
Open 6 weeks Nose - Bright green apples and pears, honey, white grapes, sweet cereal grain, noticeable ethanol punch. Palate - Honey malt, apples, light brine. Medium finish with oak age showing up, bitter floral and wood notes with a hint of brine on the back end. A really solid Speyside single malt I split with my brother over Christmas. (He bought it in NJ, it's $10 cheaper in NC.) It is similar in profile to The Balvenie Doublewood 12, but at a significantly cheaper price point. If those Speysides seem too much these days, highly recommend BenRiach.
