BenRiach Peated Single Malt Scotch Solstice 15YO


Unusually for a Speyside distillery, we distil whisky from both styles of malted barley, non peated and peated, enabling us to capture the defining taste and aroma of peat reak in a few of our special bottlings. BenRiach ‘Solstice’ is one such expression – distilled from heavily peated malted barley, the whisky has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished in aged Tawny Port pipes, sourced from the Duoro region in the north of Portugal. The overall maturation period, across both styles of wood is a minimum of 15 years. TASTING NOTES - Nose: Rich wood smoke with ladles of sweet peat. Home made raspberry jam and spiced fruit shortcake. Spicy and big. Colour: Rich ruby-rose with a luscious pink burst. Taste: Massive peat and wood smoke flavours partner a base of soft red fruits and autumn spices – cloves and cinnamon specifically. Very bold and intense characteristics. 700ml, 50% abv.
