This Speyside single malt is part of the much anticipated BenRiach single cask batch release. Distilled in September 1985 from peated barley and matured in a virgin oak cask for 33 years, this expression has been bottled in 2019 at a natural strength of 48.1% abv. Only 229 bottles have been produced.
The nose is sweet and smoky with caramel, oak-spiced orange, smoked mango and lemon peel. The palate brings sweet lemon bursts, honey, and grapefruit before guava, passion fruit and lemongrass emerge in the finish.
