User Reviews of the BenRiach 20 Year Old


Wow! This single malt punches *way* above its price-range and is an absolute steal for a 20YO of this quality.
BenRiach is one of my absolute favorite distilleries right now!
Long arrival, long finish.
Slightly oily but a fabulous mouthfeel.
Dried fruits, spice, vanilla, and just a bit of smoky cask influence.

Cask Overpowers the original spirit. Slightly oily reflecting possible warm rather than higher temperature in the fermentation. Like most Speysides the cut is probably high giving an estery flavour and aroma from ethyl acetate.
Nose sweet, dried fruit probably an Oloroso cask finish, vanilla and candy reflect American Oak. Slight smoke in the background either low peat contribution or first fill highly charred American Oak yielding 4-vinyl guaiacol. After 45mins airing the sherry cask still dominates, suggesting almost half contribution from Oloroso or long finish in same.
Palate very sweet, spicy from American oak, but dominated by the sherry. Plenty of body.
Finish long, sweet, smokey, spicy

Great whisky!

I loved the older batches of BenRiach 20yo when they were predominantly bourbon cask matured, but since they changed to a heavier, richer sherry cask style, I love it even more! Rich, sweet, slightly charred/smoky with a nice weight. Perfection!

Not normally a whisky drinker, but received a bottle on retiring, and I must say it is a pleasure to drink, now looking to replace the almost finished bottle.

Евгений, ваша "нелюбовь" к 20-ке достигла даже этого сайта. А мне виски показался очень даже интересным. Богатый и сложный аромат, главные ноты которого проходят и во вкусе и в послевкусии. В нем открылось многое из того, чего нет ни в 12 ни в 16 летнем BenRiach серии Heart of Speyside

Not impressed

We did not like your 20 year old whiskey but we preferred the 16 year old. We think maybe we might of got a bad whiskey because we have heard very good reviews of it and we were not impressed. A complimentary bottle would be much appreciated.

Обычная 12 намного лучше. 20 напоминает смесь 12BenRiach и 12 AnCnoc + 50% спирта. Ожидал большего.
