Tasting note: Master Blender, Rachel Barrie has extended her three cask maturation policy to Benriach's new-look 10, employing Bourbon, Oloroso and Virgin oak. Marshmallow and malt-rich aromas arrive with hints of poached fruits, honey and vanilla leading into a full bodied, well rounded whisky with a slightly oily feel. The fruity middle offers a decent injection of spice. The finish is medium-fresh, mildly tangy and nicely balanced. A full flavoured dram at a very reasonable asking price. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... This new member of the core range is wholly from stock produced by the distillery’s new(ish) owner. It has a gentle, sweet, honeycomb nose, with some banana, a little malt, and lemon freshness. The palate shows light honey/honeysuckle at the start and is well balanced, with maltiness and a signature spicy finish adding a dry counterpoint to the sweetness from the cask and a distillate with good weight. Good price as well. Lovely. 43% Alc./Vol.
