- Benriach 17 Year Old Solstice 2nd Edition
2nd expression of Solstice from Benriach distillery in Speyside. Solstice 17 year old is a heavily peated single malt Scotch matured in Portwood. Limited edition.
Nose: Fabulous aroma of stewed summer berries including strawberries, blackcurrants and red currants. The berry component is richly locked together by a muscular peaty blast. Latter traces of fortified wine and grape like qualities become apparent.
Palate: Initially dry roasted nutty flavours flow over the palate. This advances to become a heavy peaty affair. Subtle notes of dried raisins and candied fruit. Clean and very enticing with the dominant peat flavours lingering on the palate. Smooth and very long.
