Matured in a combination of first fill Oloroso and PX casks, this sherry whisky delivers distinctive aromas such as dried fruits, raisins and bitter chocolate. At first, the nose is somewhat subdued and featureless. After adding a drop of water, you can find cinnamon, walnuts and even some hints of coffee. BenRiach 12 Sherry Wood tastes sweet, intense and aromatic with Christmas spices, dark fruits and a delicate nuttiness. The finish is peppery sweet and surprisingly long with well-balanced European oak cask bitterness. A solid Single Malt that has minor flaws in the aroma.
