BenRiach 18 Year Old Cask 85089 Tasting Notes
Appearance: Crisp harvest gold.
Nose: A classic harmony of tarte tatin, cinnamon and a subtle back note of desiccated coconut, surrounded by warm oak-spices and barley sugars.
Palate: A delicious avalanche of fruits and crisp green apples, which develops to dried apricots then sweetens to ripe melons. This is perfectly balanced with a fresh twist of lime, a dusting of vanilla sugar and a contrasting peppery oak.
