The BenRiach 30 Years Old Authenticus


BenRiach have extended their pleasingly peaty Authenticus series with a 30 year old expression (following on from theξ21 Year Oldξandξ25 Year Old). A rich, smoky, well-balanced dram from the fantastic distillery.

Nose:ξMature oak joined by earthy vanilla and smoky peat. A whiff of mince pie and shortbread.

Palate:ξPowerfully peaty, though it doesn't overwhelm the palate. Mint chocolate, cigar box and a note akin to rancio all appear.

Finish:ξLong-lasting smokiness.
