    Benriach 17 yo ‘Septemdecim’ (46%, OB, +/-2015)
    A peated one. Quite loved the early bottlings despite the wacky Roman
    name (WF 87 in 2012). Colour: white wine. Nose: was it still Seagram
    that made these peated batches? It’s one of the most delicate and
    elegant peat I’ve seen, although delicateness and elegance might not
    quite be what you’d expect from a peated whisky. Love these whiffs of
    old toolbox, penny book, castor oil, fresh oil paint, or linseed oil…
    It’s a very un-coastal peatiness, but the mainland sure has its charms.
    Mouth: I remember why I loved an earlier version, it’s because it’s so
    un-Islay. Salted cough syrup, ink, smoked salmon, ashes… I’m re-reading
    my old notes, and it seems that it used to be fruitier, while this one’s
    clearly more ashy/salty/sooty. Eating cigar ashes (while distracted).
    Finish: quite long, very ashy. I don’t quite know where this saltiness
    come from – doesn’t smoke trigger salt on our tongues? A debate to open
    on a whisky forum, one day… Comments: I think it got different, but
    quality’s similarly high. Forgot to mention lapsang souchong, this is
    very ‘lapsang-souchong-y’. No, we’re afraid of nothing. SGP:367 - 87 points.
