Benriach Peated Quarter Casks Reviews
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Bright summer gold.
Nose: Elegant waves of wood smoke intensify to burning heather with a delicious contribution of ripe orchard fruits. Subtle notes of peaches, cinnamon sugar and a slightly herbal note of fresh barley give an added contrast to the unique, rich peat character.
Taste: Intense peat smoke mellows to smouldering peat embers infused with green pear and nectarine fruit notes. Nutty oak and vanilla pods combine with a touch of white pepper and a twist of lime to give an intriguing, crisp, smoky finish.

I agree with Neil. I've always been a fan of Benriach too. The Septendecim is wonderful. But this is just a bit ordinary. Perfectly drinkable, but I won't order it again.
What can one say, a copy of the Laphroaig quarter cask ? not really ! very interesting whisky but i fear grossly over -priced for such a young and unestablished line from this fine distillery. I am somewhat shocked at the ordasity to charge such a high price for a medium quality spirit. Be that as it may it is a rather pleasant, quirky dram with a nice , novel character, the nutty flavour reminds me of an older Bunnahabhain 12. I didn't get the peaches note but rather florally , a bit too much heather notes for me but others might enjoy it. Taste wise, neat is not so strong for a 46%. modestly balanced ,kind of fresh fruit with a slight almond taste, peach comes after a drop of water. cleam modest and ( for me ) slightly off smokey finish. not a bad drop but as mentioned above ,way over priced .... be warned.
