A very interesting 2016 release from Benriach, this was made with peated barley and fully matured in quarter casks. The result is a peaty, nutty and spicy Speyside whisky.Tasting Notes (1)

Producer's Tasting Notes
Bright summer gold.
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.
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.

It’s taste is more bitter than Laphroaig but it’s good.
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.
