What's in a name? Benrinnes 10 Year Old 2003 - Hepburn's Choice (Langside) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Benrinnes 10 Year Old 2003 - Hepburn's Choice (Langside) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Bennrines is a little gem of a distillery still waiting to be discovered. It generally produces a very rich and rewarding dram. However this offering from Hepburn's does not do the distillery any favours at all. It is very thin and malty with a distinct taste of sulphur. The cask selection was not good. For a true taste of Benrinnes look elsewhere.
