BenRiach 'Heredotus Fumosus' 12 years old Heavily Peated Sherry Finish 46%

This rather interesting BenRiach has been made from heavily peated barley and matured in American oak casks before being re-racked into first fill Pedro Ximinez sherry casks which gives it flavours of sweet peat and smoke with hints of citrus and vanilla, followed by a rich fruity sherry influence. There is a distinctly sweet and salty element to this dram, much like sweet dates or prunes wrapped in salty, smoky ham. The finish is lengthy with a balancing dryness and a touch of something herbacious. Incredible value for money, this is a top-notch smoky dram.
