    I usually like the OOPH of the Ardbegs and Octomores, however this one has a place in my heart for balancing peat with the fruit salad that is this whisky.

      Cocoa, tobacco, marzipan, canned pear, lemongrass, cooked apples. The peat here has developed over time. There's a stronger tobacco, cocoa, and sweet and nutty aspects as well.

      Cinnamon apples, allspice/jerk chicken wings, tar, black tea. Really fast finish. Like me...

    Comments and Tasting Notes by BenRiach;

    The Septendecim is the latest edition to the BenRiach Peated range. This 17 year old peated whisky has been matured in ex-bourbon casks and is a real robust heavyweight.

    Septendecim is non chill filtered, and bottled at natural colour with a strength of 46% vol.

    Tasting Notes;

    Appereance:

    Rich summer gold with a freshly harvested barley impression.

    Nose:

    A robust mix of fresh peaty aromas, constructed around a central core of apples and toasted nuts which have been dowsed in wild mountain honey.

    Palate:

    Sweet concentrated peat flavours dominate from the start. Bold and intense. The peaty heart is united with honey-infused raisins, roasted nuts and a luxurious leather impression. Full-bodied with fantastic length. A real heavyweight, which will impart a lasting impression on the palate.
