Benriach 25 Year Old
70cl / 46%
Authenticus Peated Malt
- Distillery Bottling
A 25 year old from Speyside's Benriach, made using their peated spirit and sat at the top end of the age range for their peated whisky. This is the follow-up to the much-vaunted Authenticus 21yo and is claimed by the producers to show herb, honey and tropical fruit flavours alongside the smoke.
Benriach 25 Year Old Reviews
Bright, warm amber gold.
Elegant aromas of ripe pineapple, fresh mountain herbs and a profusion of sweet peat. A huge pungent blast of peat smoke emerges, partnering the peated element perfectly. Full bodied and audacious.
A fantastic fusion of rich peat and smouldering embers bound together by fresh herbs - oregano, aniseed and chicory in particular. A rush of sweet, wild honey provides a lovely contrast to this lively, intense expression.
Terrific weight and development which leaves a powerful long lasting impression on the palate.
