Halò Single Malt Mates,
I hae been to the BenRiach Distillery near Elgin, Scotland. A guid visit indeed!
Here is a new cask strength peated expression matured in sherry and bourbon puncheons! Oh Joy!
Peated Cask Strength 56% 70cl
Producer Benriach Distillery Co
Age No Age Statement
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 56%
Benriach have peated a proportion of their spirit for many years now, taking the style back to how Speyside whiskies were in the 19th Century. This addition to the peated range follows the popularity of their standard, unpeated Cask Strength batch release. The combination of Oloroso Sherry cask and Bourbon barrel matured peated spirit gives this whisky a balance of campfire smoke, sweet fruit, toffee apples and oak.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Butterscotch drizzled over campfire-roasted apples combined with crisp white pepper. A gentle, earthy oak character adds to the subtly peated back note.
Palate: A warm, toasted oak sweetness combines with toffee apples and ripe nectarines. A sweet heather smoke slowly builds, leaving a lingering peat note alongside Scottish tablet and rich stewed barley.
You guys might really like this one. Sherry and bourbon maturation and smoooth as silk Yeah.
