Benriach 17 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine
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.
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.
Clean and pure.
Another fine smoked Benriach.

This is a very subtle whisky which in my opinion tastes better than it smells although the smell is nice as well. You can smell fruits and peat. Taste wise this is awesome and benefits from the addition of water greatly. There’s definitely vanilla everywhere which carries on to the aftertaste. I would buy again but did not give five stars because of the price.
An excellent peaty whisky, very drinkable indeed.
Lively and lasting !!
Best peated whisky I have ever tasted, and I've tasted a few!! Magnificent stuff.
