BenRiach Singe Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes -
Released in May 2007, BenRiach 'Heredotus Fumosus' is part of a range of three 12 year old heavily peated BenRiachs, originally matured in American oak and then finished either in sherry, port or dark rum wood.
Matured in American bourbon barrels, then 'finished' in Pedro Ximinez Sherry butts, from the bodegas of Jerez de la Frontera. During this second period of maturation the whisky derives interesting characteristics specific to the Pedro Ximinez butt..
Nose: Sweet peat and smoke, clean citrus and vanilla notes with a rich backdrop of Pedro Ximinez Sherry.
Taste: Sweet peat and smoky kippers, bog myrtle, lavender and sultanas, with a sublime Pedro Ximinez Sherry finish.
