Benriach The Twelve Bottling Note

From Benriach's 2020 relaunch of its cracking core range comes The Twelve, a 12 year old Speyside single malt mature in a trio of casks - namely sherry casks, bourbon casks and Port casks! This maturation has imparted dried fruit notes galore, alongside wafts of good coffee and subtle spices. Very impressive indeed.

Benriach The Twelve Reviews

No wow factor but decent whisky

I usually almost exclusively drink peated Islay whisky but I'm trying to expand my horizon and go with more sherry sweetness. Already did aberlour and thought it was fabulous. Had big expectations about BenRiach 12 and here is my thoughts.
On the nose I'm picking orange, maple and little bit of chocolate. Nose is quite fruity and something I did expect. The Palate is surprisingly peppery and oaky. I'm not sensing lot of cherrynes or sweetness more like oak, peppers and nuts. The finish is pretty short on my mind and it's the same as peppery with some orange peels.
To be honest I'm little disappointed. I know I'm biased because of my love for peat but this lacks character in my mind. Gonna try their peated ones next.

Expected more

Disappointing. Too sweet, no character, not sure if it's worth the higher price tag. Benriach used to be one of my favorite Scotch distilleries. Not sure if this disappointing expression is a sign of new ownership.

A nice drink

This is a nice whisky. Sweet and fruity. The cask maturation works with for me the bourbon coming to the fore.
I’d add a touch of banana to the finish which is pleasant and lingering.
Good value for money.

Very Good

One of the best 12 year olds I’ve tried, all three casks come into to play here, really really tasty. In my opinion Benriach are producing some excellent whiskies at the moment . Try it !

Ok

An allaround whisky with no special character. The sweetnes is sugary rather than spicy or fruity. Not bad, but there are some blends out there that are cheaper and better than this one.

excellect stuff.

beautifully married this.. black or blueberry, and a little strawberry and banana too.. pepper that goes right to finish. some buttery vanilla from the bourbon, but the two wine casks hold the strongest hand. Slightly swet but not enough to make it sickly.
Im quite enamoured with this. Decent mouthfeel too. considering price and age.. 5/5

Its very good but I prefer the smoky version, just my personal taste

Poor whisky

Disappointed with this, far too sweet and concentrated, I added water (a lot) but my original dislike to the homogenized flavour remained, so I gave it away.

it's ok

Not a bad whisky but not one I would buy again,it's good value for money as it is bottled at 46% and natural colour but I think it is chill filtered as it did not turn cloudy with the addition of water but nothing stood out for me especially the short finish. Lots of other 12yr olds around this price bracket that I would go for instead of this, having said that my Dad really liked it so everyones taste is different.

Very very nice.

I am very new to whisky as I’ve never been a spirit drinker but this I thought was a great drink.
Not rough like other whisky I’ve had in the past.
Definitely loved the maple syrup that came through.
Plenty others for me to choose from but will definitely buy another bottle of this.
