The Second release, 17 year old BenRiach from the peated "Solstice" range.

The first edition of Solstice was a 15 year old which was launched back in 2010, this latest 17 year old is heavily peated and has been finished in tawny port pipes.

Awarded 94 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, he had this to say:

"This is the perfect dram for a bitterly cold winter's day the world over. Or midsummer's day in England."

Tasting Notes

Nose: Fabulous aroma of stewed summer berries including strawberries, blackcurrants and red currants locked together by a muscular peaty blast. Latter traces of fortified wine and grape like qualities become apparent.

Palate: Initial, dry roasted nutty notes flow over the palate. This advances to become a heavy peaty affair. Subtle notes of dried raisins, and candied fruit. Clean and very enticing with the dominant peat flavours lingering on the palate.

Finish: Smooth and very long.

The Benriach 17 year 2nd edition whisky is definitely a new favourite. Initially you get a dry roasted nutty taste which then changes into a heavy peaty affair which is absolutely delicious. It also has a slight taste of dried raisins and candied fruit. The finish was long with nice peat and a touch of wood dryness.
