BenRiach Madeira wood finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Balanced and with good weight. A good addition to the range.

BenRiach 16 Years Old 1995 Cask 7164
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.30%
8 This whisky is oak dominated. Too much for me as we have lost the distillery character, but the nose is expressive. Beware of water, it kills it.

BenRiach 17 Years Old 1993 Burgundy Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Just a little lacking in full integration. You can sense the whisky sitting underneath the finish.
