BenRiach Cask Strength Batch 2 has been matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, virgin oak hogsheads and oloroso sherry casks before being blended together. This rigorous maturation process gives depth and complexity to a dram that takes water very well, elongating the fruit characters.
Nose: Toffee apple, apricot and orange blossom with a ginger-spiced barley zing.
Palate: Creme caramel and milk chocolate surround sugared almonds and ripe nectarine glazed with lime.
Finish: Honey and vanilla with candied peel and green apple.
