A fab 10-year-old single malt from Benriach, was released as part of a new core range, launched in 2020. The Original Ten was matured in a trio of casks - bourbon barrels, sherry casks and virgin oak casks - imparted a bounty of honeyed fruit and softly toasted oak notes alongside just a hint of smoke .Top work from Benriach master blender Dr. Rachel Barrie and her team!
Nose: Nectarine, honeydew melon, vanilla sponge with cream and jam and a touch of cedar.
Palate: More baked goods - now croissants dipped in milky coffee and cinnamon rolls. Still packs plenty of creamy orchard fruits notes, plus a waft of earthy peat.
Finish: Nutty malt, vanilla pod and apricot remains.
