Benriach 17 Year Old / Septendecim
70cl / 46%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
An entry in the latin(-ish) named range from Benriach, stepping up from their 10 year old Curiositas with a 17 year old version of their peated Speyside dram. They say it harks back to the older peaty styles of Speyside whisky, we just say it's rather tasty.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

Nose
There's obvious smokiness which starts as sweet tobacco and then moves slowly towards a cowshed aroma. There's vanilla, estery notes, unripe apricot and a pleasant dustiness.

Palate
Light, sweet start which opens slowly into banana. The smoke blasts through in the middle of the tongue, but is immediately controlled by the vanilla. With water it's nicely agricultural.

Finish
Clean and pure.

Comments
Another fine smoked Benriach.
