BenRiach Septendecim Bottling Note

From BenRiach's peated range comes Septendecim (seventeen in Latin) - a 17 year old Speyside whisky made in the styles of Speyside whisky from yesteryear - more robust and muscular.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Vanilla custard, pipe tobacco, cedarwood, black treacle, toffee apples and peach nectar.

Palate: Cut hay and gentle malt, smouldering peat smoke, vanilla, spiced cinnamon and rhubarb crumble. Black pepper and nutmeg develops.

Finish: More of those exotic spice notes on the tail.

User Reviews of the BenRiach 17 Year Old Septendecim

Wow very unique Speyside whisky

Saw this at costco for $80 and figured what hell why not I don't typically get whiskys in this age range this is probably a good deal.Let it sit in the glencairn for a bit before tasting and am extremely impressed.First off drink this neat it's very smooth and the level of flavor and richness going on here is too good to water down.It has the initial feel of an Islay whisky but instead of a dry, smoky/briney flavor the peat fades and sweet oak,cinnamon,grass,honey and a well done candy apple finish with a hint of peat.This is superb, I usually try a younger whisky from a distillery at first and if I am impressed I go from there so this is a little unfair but this is absolutely wonderful and I will definitely try other things from Benriach in the future.Cheers!

Perfect medium peated speyside.

Peated whiskys seem to be either overpowering TCP 'bonfire on a beach' or barely there 'whisp of smoke through the heather' (dont you hate the same descriptions trotted out?) well this BenRiach 17 hits the perfect balance of moderate smouldering peat perfectly integrated with rounded speyside elegance & length - fascinating far eastern spice notes on the finish. At last a bottle I would buy again !

Easily the best when tasted against 16-18yo Caolisla, Ledaig, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Benromach. 2nd place Longrow CV was complex but being younger it lacked depth.

Memorable - in a good way

I was given a bottle of this last year and really enjoyed it. I like smokey, peaty flavours and this was a belter. A memorable dram that I will buy again.

Peaty scent under laid with softer notes of fruit. The more it breathes, the fruitier the scent. With most peated whiskies, the first taste is peat, but not with one. The peat lingers but doesn't overpower - smoldering is a good word for it. There is an oily mouth feel and a black pepper taste with a hint of vanilla.

Great peated alternative

Punchy peat with declicious speyside notes. Went down really well at the Manchester Whisky Club a few months back, my favourite of the night - P

The mymic

If you're an islay fan and you're looking for an older heavily peated whisky, but don't want to pay the iron price (70-90) then this is your man. Rich smoke, oily mouthfeel, excellent bourbon wood, buy it!
