The first impression of the BenRiach 20 is exciting. The nose is spicy with a presence of oak which easily excites you into the full bodied flavour to come.
As you take the first sip of this speyside you will be greeted with a surprising smoothness and subtle appearance of smokiness that blends very well with the spiciness and oak picked up on the nose.
The long evolving finish is sure to please! The flavours slowly drift off into a sweetness of caramel and last but not least light note of chocolate.
This 20 yr single malt with its light, yet long lasting complex profile would be a great choice this summer!
