Benriach - tastings?

Postby Whiskytaster » Mon May 11, 2009 1:18 pm

I was up on speyside last week for the festival having a fantastic time when I came accross Benriach for the first time.

The non-iodine peatiness (unlike islay peat, speyside peat is not seaweed based so does not have the tcp/iodine characteristics) just grabbed me and I am looking for any more tastings from this distillery.

Anyone know of any tastings from this distillery in the SE / London area?

An awesome distillery and one of my personal favourites!

Check out the 10 and 21yo peated whiskies, and also some of their peated finished whiskies such as the excellent 'Importanticus Fumosus', 'Arumaticus Fumosus', and 'Heredotus Fumosus'.

The 21yo peated is simply fantastic and the 10yo peated is almost as good for quite a bit less - perhaps the better value of the two.

Oh ya - the 15yo Madeira is really, really good - my favourite non-peated whisky from them.

Cheers!
