Benriach 22 Year Albariza Peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky

205 JD

Distilled and bottled by Benriach, this 22 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks, which imparts a rich, fruity sweetness to the robust, peated Benriach flavour profile.

Albariza Peated is non-chill filtered and of natural colour, and this Speyside beauty was bottled at 46% ABV. Albariza itself is a white marl composed of calcium, clay and sea fossils that is used to grow grapes for the production of Sherry in the Andalucia region of Southern Spain. The more you know.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, cherry sweetness breaks through light leather, chicory and smoky oak. Some red meat and sweet barley lingers. Sweet Mirabella peppers, black cherry and ripe figs rise on the palate but don't dominate, as licks of vanilla, campfire peat and a pricks of white pepper fill out a deep palate. Long finish, with some menthol, honey and dark chocolate.
