BenRiach The Twelve single malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy BenRiach/Brown-Forman.This single malt replaces the previous BenRiach 12 Sherry Cask in the distillery’s range, and is matured in a combination of ex-Sherry, Ruby Port, and ex-Bourbon casks. The nose is malty and fruity with tree fruits, honey, vanilla, toasted oak, and a hint of heather. The taste has a good balance of barley sugar, peaches, apples, and hints of ginger, vanilla, and honey with a touch of molasses in the background. The finish is long, fruity, and complex with hints of malt, toasted oak, and lingering spices. Excellent! (September, 2020)
