Benriach 16 is a well-balanced, complex, aromatic dram that is very easily drinkable with an overall fruity character, which is typical of a Speysider. Sweetness is not dominant, neither is peat (obviously). Pleasant and long finish. It is a very decent dram for the money, it may even be the best value 16 YO Speysider. It is a shame that it wasn't bottled at 46% ABV.

I was recommended this malt by one of the guys in the Whisky Exchange shop in London. He knows his stuff! This is a suberb malt for the money. Smooth as silk with many complex flavours and a lovely finish. Heartily recommended.

When I first saw this whiskey I thought it looked like horse p***...thin and mildly amber. But WHOA! Horse p*** it was not! A great creamy taste with a vanilla nose and a smooth, long, and hardy finish. It put me on my a**!
