The first release from Benriach’s Peated Cask Strength series (in the same vein as their unpeated Cask Strength releases) is made with whiskies drawn from Oloroso Sherry casks and bourbon barrels.
Nose: Well-charred oak, cinnamon, salted caramel and vanilla-y cereal.
Palate: Earthy and smoky, with a pinch of white pepper warmth growing at the core. Fresh fruit notes add a hint of sweetness to the background.
Finish: Dry smoke and heather honey.
