BenRiach Triple Distilled – 10 years old

32089496_1403156229788837_2003762299835252736_nThe BenRiach Triple Distilled expression is a recent addition to their travel retail exclusive line. It has been maturing in a combination of casks of first fill American Oak bourbon barrels and first fill PX sherry casks for at least 10 years before being bottled at 43%. On the nose I can find some flavours of toffee, powdered sugar, red apple, vanilla custard, raisins, warm pastry, honey, tangerines, warm banana, fruit cake, soft ginger, cinnamon and wood spices.

The palate shows me a good amount of creamy sweetness. Vanilla pudding, victorian sponge cake, a soft ginger note and some other spices mixed in with milk chocolate, dried fruits and mixed cereals. Different orchard fruits are coming forward like apples and pears, but also some black currant and oranges are present. A hint of dryness on the medium length finish. Thanks BenRiach for sharing a sample of this new release!
Cheers,

Ansgar
