Tasting Notes

The BenRiach distillery in Scotland's Speyside region has a long history of making multiple styles of single malt whisky, but it is safe to say that their heavily peated, sherry-matured editions have been nothing short of magical since we first started buying casks directly from the facility six years ago. Rich, heady, supple on the palate, sweet and dripping from the sherry influence, that hedonistic splendor is intensified by the addition of peat and smoke. If you can imagine a combination of Glendronach's unctuous richness and Lagavulin's potent, yet elegant phenolics, you'll get a sense of the style. Then add a huge discount on top of that, and you end up with one of the best whisky deals we'll see at K&L this year.

    Wow, seriously just wow. I know I sound like a broken record when I say things like "I cannot believe how good this bottle is" and "that is the price!" but all I can say is I cannot believe how good this whisky is especially considering the price. The Oloroso cask is immediately present in the nose giving you rich floral notes to go along with the dark molasses and hints of smoke. The palate offers depth and intensity without becoming cloying, although this is a big whisky it holds itself lightly. The smoke underlays the whisky, supporting it but never overwhelming. Seriously, this is good.

    This exceptional single malt is not for the shy. It is big and lusty with tonnes of smoke aromas and flavors. Very good, the smoke and rich body interact together to product a high quality single malt.
