BenRiach Peated - Batch 1
BenRiach have defied some of the norms of the Scottish whisky regions, it is generally accepted that whiskies produced in the Speyside whisky region are not smokey, BenRiach decided to prove that this is incorrect. This is batch one, matured in both bourbon and sherry casks and bottled at 56%abv to give the most of the whisky.
Toffee apples, burnt sugar and spicy ginger along with a strong bonfire smoke. The palate is much sweeter and less smokey, with orchard fruit and green malt. There is a long finish which leaves behind a sweet peat smoke,
