BenRiach The Smokey 12
Another part of the refreshed core line-up from BenRiach. This single dram released in 2020 is crafted with peated and unpeated malts matured in bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and Marsala wine butts. As its name suggests, the Smokey 12 has a smokey scent at its focus with slight undertones of bitterness and sweetness, which adds a smooth note to this intensified smokey dram.
Tasting Note by BenRiach
Nose: Smoked vanilla, charred orange and toasted almond.
