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.

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.

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.

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

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:)
