    Some of these peated single casks are really great – like this one – and much better than the ‘compositions’ like Fumosos et al. This was, by the way, my 75th BenRiach!
    • Nose
      The nose offers some grapefruit, mandarin and some other citrus fruit to lesser extent, but your attention is mostly drawn by all kinds of stable scents, smoked and spiced bacon on the barbecue, sun dried hay and a slice of toasted, brown bread. The peat also gives is a slightly sweet and sour note. But – and it surprises me somewhat – I find it very good.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it holds the middle between sweet and smoky, but BenRiach as such is simply unrecognizable. This is more like Lagavulin, so very peaty! The fruit gets a sugar coating, while honey and cinnamon also contribute their sweetness. Becomes very ‘Islay’ if you ask me. But good? Yes, most certainly so.
    • Finish
      The finish is very, very long and remains sweet and spicy. It warms your insides.
