"...juicy, fabulously smoked... Young & stunning."
- Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

Another progression in Benriach's smokey foray, this one peated at 35ppm, up there with some of Islay's biggest and best. Comes non chill filtered.

Retasted 2020... Compared to the Peated cask strength version, the peat feels more densely layered - no doubt as was the intention. But it's the length and exquisite freshness at the tangy finish that really grabs you. Makes you wonder how they pulled it off. A gem for the price.48% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Youthful, fresh barley and lively, clean smoke; juicy, fabulously smoked, wet behind the ears gristy sugars; some vanillas try to enter a degree of complexity... before Birnie Moss started shaving... or even possibly toddling. Young and stunning.
90 points- Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020

First tasted 2014... [15ml sample] Pale gold. Wax or damp earth in the opening sniffs? Transforms as vanilla and sooty peat develop over biscuity malt. Vaguely grassy flavours with lanolin followed by vanilla laced peat. More woolshed and aniseed honey-like at the finish. Lively spirit but everything in balance. Lovely freshness in the aftertaste. 90 points 48% Alc./Vol.
