- Benriach 17 Year Old Septendecim
New 2012 bottling of the heavily peated single malt Scotch from Benriach distillery in Speyside.
Distilled from peated malted barley (33ppm), the Scotch is matured in ex-bourbon casks only.
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. Full of energy and vibrancy.
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 heavy-weight which will implant a lasting impression on the palate.
