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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Maple syrup on blueberry pancakes, dark chocolate, quince and orange.

Palate: Honeyed cereals, cooked apple, chocolate peanuts and soft, almost jammy sultanas.

Finish: Mocha, honey, dried fruit and mixed peels.

Benriach The Twelve Reviews

Good but the Smoky version is even better

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.

A very nice malt for the price

There is quite a depth of flavours which are not easy to identify with my palate anyway. There's a definite hit of citrus in the background - I would say orange. Overall, it is very enjoyable. And I hope to win the trip to Benriach.

A Speyside specialty to savour

This is a great marriage of the three different casks, giving you a delicious and reasonably complex whisky. The tasting notes are very much there with immediate syrupy sweet nose and candied orange. The soft oily texture was delightful on the palate and I also found notes of cherries and the dried fruits with a smooth chocolate, citrus and soft almond finish - excellent value and a worthy Speyside contender in my collection, I like it.

Full flavoured, with lingering sweetness

Great full flavour right off the bat. Rich amber colour. I enjoyed the mix of toffee sweetness and a little port. Left a pleasant lingering taste. One of the best lower priced whisky I've tried in a while, would definitely buy again. Husband also very much enjoyed.

Sweet and Tasty.

I really like this - it's sweet and tasty, and a bit different. Unless the idea of sweetness puts you off, you should give it a try - I was attracted by the tasting note, and it was better than I'd expected! I currently have 58 whiskies from around the world (half Scotch) and this is definitely worthy of a place in the collection - I'll be buying again.

Although review is not great, please try and gauge for yourself

Born in a land of hard competition and sadly only sits mid-table. The nose is harsher than I like, palate is like that of a highland and finish leaves the taste of alcohol. For those reading this (for comparison) my favourite tipples are (1) balvenie 12 and (2) macallan gold.

A cask too far ?

Not sold on this 1 . The addition of the port cask has for me spoiled what could have been a really good whisky . The 3 just dont work together for me . Of course taste is subjective , but I think this would have been much better without the port cask .

gets 3 stars for being 46% non chill filtered and natural colour , but not 1 I'd buy again
