BENRIACH 18yo 1996 2014 70cl 52.2% Malts of Scotland - Bourbon #14017

Nose: very aromatic nose. I have only just poured it and already my nose is filled with loads of fruit (mostly white and yellow), but also creamy beeswax. Creamy and sweet, indeed. It has a mildly tropical side with mostly oranges and apricots now. Something of green grapes and some mocha. I cannot get it out of my mind that is also has something green. Some garden herbs and mint. Nice!

Taste: beautiful, creamy arrival without burning. Immediately honeysweet on yellow fruit (pineapple joins the fray) and the spices pipe up. Ginger, mint and a pinch of pepper. Very nice. It becomes sweeter still while in the mouth. A big dollop of caramel kicks in. The mocha returns. This does not need water.

Finish: the finish is honeysweet and very long.
