BENRIACH 12 ans 2007 Peated Sherry PX 56,2%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56661

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

It was in 1983 that Benriach first began producing a peated single malt. Its malting floors closed in 1998. But in 2013 it began very sporadically malting part of its own malt again. If we had to sum up this 35 ppm bottling in just one word, it would undoubtedly be “elegant”. Elegant in the incredibly pure expression of its spirit, elegant in its wonderfully complex fruit, and elegant in its peat imbued with deep sophistication right down to its notes of hydrocarbon. Magnificent.

the fresh initial nose is peaty, rooty, salty and oily. Allowed to breathe, it becomes milky (coconut), fruity (apple), floral (lily of the valley) and roasted. The lively and unctuous attack reveals incredibly refined peat. Exotic (passion fruit, mango) and chocolatey. The mid-palate is at once maritime and heady (mimosa). The generous finish is characterized by soot notes. It is remarkably malty, and also herbaceous (bay leaf), fruity (Mirabelle plum) and vegetal.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant golden yellow.
  • Nose : fine, fresh. A rooty, salty and oily peat provides lots of nuance to the initial nose. Allowed to breathe, it takes on milky (coconut), fruity (apple, pineapple), floral (lily of the valley) and roasted (coffee) tones. Gradually, beeswax, acacia honey and fresh walnut coat the taste buds. At this point, the aromatic palette evokes an iconic single malt from the south-east of Islay.
  • Palate : lively yet creamy. The same oily and earthy peat drives an extremely delicate attack on the palate. The same attack is both very exotic (passion fruit, mango) and chocolatey. On the mid-palate, notes of black olive, smoky bacon and smoked salmon highlight the earthy, maritime character of this Benriach. Heady florals (broom, mimosa, iris) beautifully punctuate the very end of the palate.
  • Overall : long, rich. At the start of the finish, soot coats the palate. It brings with it light particles of hydrocarbon (diesel). Note that malted barley now plays a leading role in the development of the flavour palette. On the retro-nasal olfaction, its wonderful bitterness brings out herbaceous (sage, chervil, bay leaf), fruity (Mirabelle plum, greengage plum), vegetal (straw) and liquorice notes. As well as being oily, fishy and gamy (Viande des Grisons), the empty glass very clearly evokes gentian root.

The brand

Rather unjustly, Benriach was, until just a few years ago, relatively unknown, but it hasn’t ceased to make up for lost time. Indeed, this distillery has, for many decades, had a huge amount to offer and has proven this time and time again since being bought in 2004. Its warehouses are bursting with all sorts of sherry butts (Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez, etc.), new American oak casks, ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, as well as casks previously used for wine, rum, madeira, port and even Rioja! This Speyside single malt is entirely worthy of the interest it has garnered from master blenders since its creation. Find out more
