Benriach Peated #1

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Loved it
The combination of peat sherry and bottling strength make for a superb whisky.

I hate to say this but I was very disappointed in this scotch. It has kind of an effervescent burn that is somewhat pleasant, but that’s all the positive things I can say. I didn’t get much from this except *alcohol*. In your face.

I am a big fan of Benriach, especially their peated sctotches, but this one was a letdown.

Burning coals in your mouth, but in a good way
This should be in those barrels that snow rescue dogs wear. Nice burn from head to tail. Look out Islay; another great peaty offering from Speyside!

I also recommend Old Ballantruan and Glen Moray Classic Peated.
