This expression from Speyside distiller BenRiach is matured in smaller quarter casks that allows greater surface area interaction between the wood of the cask and the spirit itself resulting in a more complex dram. This peated expression is slightly unusual for a Speyside whisky, with peated whiskies often associated with the Islay distilleries.

Hamish Says

Nose: burning heather and orchard fruits come in waves with subtle hints of cinnamon, peaches and fresh barley providing contrast.

Palate: an intense peat gives way to smouldering embers with fruity pear and nectarine aspects.

Finish: Crisp and smoky with oak and vanilla merging with white pepper and lime twists.
