Description

THIS PRODUCT COMES WITH ¥50 in DMSJ REWARD POINTS

Benriach Birnie Moss from the BenRiach distillery in Speyside, combining the typical fruitiness of the region with the power of peat.  This is a heavily peated whisky from the BenRiach distillery, is at higher than average strength (48% ABV) and was distilled from malt that was peated at 35ppm. Hence the result is at once smoky and very fruity.

To give this a context (as we’ve all seen products like Octomore with PPM ratings that look like telephone number): 30ppm of more is “heavily peated”.  Laphroaig barley is peated at 40ppm, giving a new make spirit that is 25ppm.  This drops to 8-10ppm on a Laphroaig 10 and reduces to about 6ppm on the Laphroaig 30.  And time and maturation affects the phenols thus reducing the ppm rating.

Think along the lines of a combination of Big Peat, Old Ballantruan & Bowmore Small Batch and your pretty much there. It may be very young but it ticks a lot of the boxes. 48%, non-chill filtered and natural colour.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Benriach Birnie Moss has rich peaty notes in wonderful balance with vanilla oak wood. Young and fruity. Toasted cereals, grass, straw, light floral notes, light vanilla, lemon, tobacco, green apples, light pepper and some herbs.  Speyside Peat isn’t the same as Islay Peat of course but there are some medicinal notes.

Palate: An avalanche of rich, sweet Speyside Peat, in combination with vanilla and tropical fruits. Light Vanilla, Toasted Cereals, Lemon, light Pepper, light Licorice, Charred Oak, light Leather and Black Espresso.
