Benriach 22 Year Old Albariza70cl / 46%
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
Albariza is the name for the white ('alba') soil in which many sherry grape vines grow. It is an appropriate moniker for this peated single malt as, after several decades' maturation in American oak casks, the whisky is finished in Pedro Ximenez barrels. This gives it sweet notes of chocolate, raisins and dates, alongside honeyed peat and garden mint.

Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: Warm, honeyed peat smoke holds gentle touches of garden mint infused through sweet dates and chocolate fondant.
Palate: A crisp sherried sweetness combines with dark chocolate, Victoria plums and rum-soaked raisins, all surrounded by an earthy, campfire smoke.
