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
Appearance: Bright, warm amber gold.
Nose: 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.
Palate: 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.
Conclusions: Terrific weight and development which leaves a powerful long lasting impression on the palate.
