  • ABV:

    51.7%

  • Age:

    20 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a single cask from Benriach. It is 20 years old, bottled at cask strength and heavily peated while also being sherry matured.

  • Nose:

    Big, moist, peat slap. Earthy bandaids, jammy fruits like raspberry, fig and date. Ash, cocoa, syrupy sweetness.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, no heat. Sherry is really prominent and is blended with pretty great complexity in with the peat. Raspberry, strawberry and cherry preserve is sticky sweet in with the peat - blends just right. Ashy, dry, earthy peat in the backend.

  • Finish:

    Long, earthy and peaty. Almost meaty. Faint fruits on the departure.

  • Overall:

    Woo baby, this was great. I think I might have really gone bonkers if this was peated and port finished but this was no slouch. Really impressive dram for sure.

  • Score:

    8
