Benriach Heart

The entry level Benriach bottling with no age statement, named for the distillery's location in Elgin in Moray at the heart of Speyside. A fresh, youthful whisky with a distinct countryside note.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Reviews for Benriach Heart of Speyside
Too much bourbon influence for me.
Too much bourbon influence and not a lot else. I don’t like bourbon so I gave up on this after a couple of attempts. The honey and oak flavours were just too sickly. A friend of mine thought it was delicious which is why I have given it three stars and him the bottle.

Classic Speyside
Benriach is a new brand to me, I’m so pleased to have discovered it. Classic Speyside, smooth, sweet and fruity. I also bought “The Twelve” and was similarly pleased. Will be reordering

Fresh and tantalising
For an entry level whisky, satisfyingly balance palate.

my first Benriach product.
So this was my first touch to this dis. Heart of Speyside is simple and sweet entrylevel whiskey. It's not the best whiskey I have drank, but not the worst either. I would like to compare this to Glenfiddich 12yr old. It's smoother, but also lacks more taste and aroma. I'm not a professional with whiskeys, so this is a review by a newbie.

Strange
The nose is somehow very strange to me. Fresh, true, but no sense of true fineness that e.g. Aberlour (my favorite of Speyside's) has. But I guess not a bad choice for this price class if you like plain & simple Scotch.

Better Than Expected
This is not rated that highly by many so called experts, so my expectation was low, It turns out to be one of my favorite summer malts. I just add a teaspoon of cold pure water, fantastic and great value.

Nice, easy, plenty of honey.
Good, refreshing one. Easy to approach, nice for taking it easy in the evenings.

Good everyday sipping fellow!
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:)
