A heavily peated whisky from the BenRiach distillery. This is at higher than average strength and was distilled from peated malt at 35ppm. The result is at once smoky and very fruity.
Alcohol stings in the nose, then solvent and light dry smoke, cereals, cucumber water, grass clippings
Palate: A little alcohol, pepper, phenolic smoke, grainy, vanilla toffee
Finish: The smoke passes over into the tannins of the young oak. The whole remains only medium.
