Another beautiful expression from BenRiach, our notes really don’t do it justice but imagine a board laid out with finest beech wood smoked ham and fresh cut melon slices, that sweet and savoury complexity that comes from swapping between meat and fruit, in essence (again) something much greater than the sum of its parts is created. 90/100
Really quite special and an education to my Irish whiskey palate. This has all the subtleties of scotch single malt and has been married masterfully using the best qualities of each of the cask maturations involved. 86/100.
