This Speyside single malt is part of the much anticipated BenRiach single cask batch release. Distilled from peated malt barley in March 2008 and matured in a bourbon barrel for 11 years, this expression has been bottled in 2019 at a natural strength of 59.4% abv. Just 93 bottles have been produced.
The nose has smoked mint and blackcurrant with bramley apple sauce. The palate brings grilled red grape and olive oil with smoked angelica and a touch of star anise, before charred apple and maple emerge in the finish.
