Also from Benriach Whisky Distillery
Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… BenRiach 12 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be BenRiach 12 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.

George - BenRiach 12
The 12 year old single malt whiskey was given to me as a gift, so I viewed it with some trepidation, but the minute I opened the bottle I was charmed by the smell and the enchantment continued to well beyond the second glass. Well done you!

Like the review above had this as a present and I have enjoyed every dram I've had, savoured the taste and smell and then have another one or two.

Such a wonderful malt at 12 years old - got me into single malts, and a firm favorite ever since. Great value for money too! Nose: Light, Floral with a definite surge of honey and vanilla coming through. The slightest trace of peat and hint of almonds (marzipan?) Palate: Extremely smooth for its age with with hints of almond blossom and marzipan. Moving to mouth-coating caramel and honeyed peaches or possibly apricots. Finish: Medium-length with a marriage of spices and caramel. A certain cookie-like feel but not at all cloying.

Очень хороший виски! Не ожидал! Думал будет преобладать спирт но нет. Классика солода. Похож на knokando 12, но лучше! Спирт не чувствуется так выразительно, пряность специй тоже, но получается очень приятная и гладкая палитра - сухофрукты, пряности, солод. Очень хороший!
(Translation using Google Translate:
Very good whiskey! Do not expect that! Thought to prevail but no alcohol. Classic Malt. Looks like knokando 12, but better! Alcohol does not feel so expressively spice spices too, but it turns out very nice and smooth palette - dried fruits, spices, malt. Very good!)

I would wrap this review up in lots of jargon, but I won't. It's really good whisky ... end of story!
