    well, they ashamedly cut this line of 1650 bottles and the new line of sauterne finish is 15 years at 20% higher price!!
    However, if you consider the recent glenmorangie nectar d'or price increase, this is a great alternative, get yours before they flood the world with the cheaper 15 year old alternatives!

    Well Balanced

    BenRiach have produced a well balanced whisky with strong Vanilla and hazelnut tastes. A surprising long finish and very good value at this price.

    A very good example

    Ben Riach are getting themselves a reputation for knocking out some very good cask finishes. Some work better than others and this Sauternes release is one of those. Sweet, delicate nose but carrying through a rich warming flavour. Great for the price - tasted at the Manchester Whisky Club

    This is a wonderful malt, honey honey smooth and we'll balanced.
    Can't beat it for the money, shame they only made 1600 or so bottles, I have purchased a few as it will all go!

    A Speyside gem

    16 year old Benriach finished in Sauternes casks should tell you this will be a bottle to savor. Similar in profile to Glenmorangie's Nectar D'or, but with a slightly broader, brisker taste, plenty of complexity and a long rewarding finish. Limited number of bottles produced so worth seeking out a couple at the earliest opportunity. Non chill filtered and no added coloring, just gorgeous stuff.
