Insider knowledge: BenRiach 1997 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be BenRiach 1997 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Sweet spices and biscuity malt. A touch of ground almond and juicy sultanas.
Palate: Corinth raisins and dried fruit. Mixed peels, hints of cocoa butter, black pepper and sherried peels.
