Nose
There's obvious smokiness which starts as sweet tobacco and then moves slowly towards a cowshed aroma. There's vanilla, estery notes, unripe apricot and a pleasant dustiness.
Palate
Light, sweet start which opens slowly into banana. The smoke blasts through in the middle of the tongue, but is immediately controlled by the vanilla. With water it's nicely agricultural.
Finish
Clean and pure.
Comment
Another fine smoked Benriach.

Nose
Phenolic. Tarry. Creosote. Farm yard. The full package!
Palate
Sweet and oily. But flowing gently. A salty feel. Fish oil. Touch of citrus and mint. Drying on spices. Fizzy.
Finish
Dry, sharp.
Comment
A full weight peaty character matured in a refill hogshead. Displays an assertive phenolic character but has not gained much from the cask.
