Delicious spicy (somewhat nutmeg) in combination with earthy tones (peat), but also some wood tones in the nose. The taste has a nice subtle spiciness, nice sweetness and again wood tones (dry and some bitterness).
The finish is medium, spicy and even some menthol.

Nose

Tězká a bohatá vůně rašeliny, koření a pepře. Ze sudu po portském si whisky natáhla hutné marmeládové tony, ale bez nějaké stopy po sladkosti.

Taste

Masivní chuť rašeliny,dřeva,hořké čokolády, trocha kouře, dál hřebíček,skořice a pepř.

Finish

Dokončení opravdu dlouhé, to se od tězce nakouřenych whisek očekává a patří k nim.

Comments

Svym tězkym a opravdu hutnym charakterem je to ideální společník do pošmournych nebo mrazivych dnů.

Having previously released single casks of port-finished peaty single malt, Benriach have now introduced Solstice, a 15yo small batch of the same. Described as heavily peated, the whiskies used for Solstice were aged first in ex-bourbon casks before a finishing period in aged tawny port pipes. Bottled without colouring or chill-filtration.

That this whiskey is doing rather well is nearly beyond me.
Salty cider on the nose, followed by smoked kippers and an unexpected spice.
Not a great balance.
