What's in a name? BenRiach Heart of Speyside whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled BenRiach Heart of Speyside whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Fresh. Cut hay, acacia honey. Damp earth, spicy.
Palate: Rounded smoothness. Marmalade. Gentle smoke, earthy peat somewhere in the substrata.
Finish: Peppery oak develops.
It is not a very complex malt but still it is a great, refreshing youngster, showin' how good the BenRiach copes with ex-bourbon casks! Very rounded as for a NAS whisky. Great quality-price relation:)
Good, refreshing one. Easy to approach, nice for taking it easy in the evenings.
