Benriach 1982 Gordon & MacPhail - Original 'Cask'





Probably very young, it’s an old-style label. Colour: gold. Nose: ouch, this is powerful. Cardboard, vanilla, flour and wet rocks plus a little café latte. Werther’s. With water: pipe tobacco, molasses, vegetables, soy sauce, Barbour grease. Unusual. Mouth (neat): burning! Is there peat now or is there not? Hard to say, such is this one’s hotness. Cough, cough. With water: quite some peat indeed, the rest being so much nicer than on the nose. Creamy vanilla and spices, pepper and liquorice. Finish: long, peppery, gingery, leathery. Comments: a hard one but it becomes wonderful on the palate once you found the right amount of water. SGP:365 - 84 points.
