BenRiach 12 Sherry Wood

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 46%
Score: 92 points

This comes from a mix of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, and the nose is aromatic, spicy, and nutty with notes of hazelnut and allspice. The taste is tart with hints of lemon peel, but balanced with a spicy touch of allspice and chili powder and a honey note underneath that keeps it on track. The finish has a great balance of honey and allspice notes, and is long and smooth.
