70cl // 50.0% ABV
An excellent 17 Year Old BenRiach, from their peated “Solstice” range. This is the second release, replacing the previous 15 Year Old version, and finished in a port pipe. Lovely stuff!
Nose: A red berry-led nose, with hints of cranberry and raspberry. Oily, brazen peat smoke, with plenty of chocolate malt and sultana notes.
Palate: Damsons and brandy butter, and a thick plume of salty wood smoke. Toffee apples, camphor and chocolate digestive biscuits.
Finish: A very long finish, with supple malt and peat smoke ’til the last.
