Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: There's obvious smokiness which starts as sweet tobacco and then moves slowly towards a cowshed aroma. There's vanilla, estery notes, unripe apricot and a pleasant dustiness.
Palate: Light, sweet start which opens slowly into banana. The smoke blasts through in the middle of the tongue, but is immediately controlled by the vanilla. With water it's nicely agricultural.
Finish: Clean and pure.
Comment: Another fine smoked Benriach.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Tarry. Creosote. Farm yard. The full package!
Palate: Sweet and oily. But flowing gently. A salty feel. Fish oil. Touch of citrus and mint. Drying on spices. Fizzy.
Finish: Dry, sharp.
Comment: A full weight peaty character matured in a refill hogshead. Displays an assertive phenolic character but has not gained much from the cask.
