The BenRiach 30 Years Old Authenticus
BenRiach have extended their pleasingly peaty Authenticus series with a 30 year old expression (following on from theŒæ21 Year OldŒæandŒæ25 Year Old). A rich, smoky, well-balanced dram from the fantastic distillery.
Nose:ŒæMature oak joined by earthy vanilla and smoky peat. A whiff of mince pie and shortbread.
Palate:ŒæPowerfully peaty, though it doesn't overwhelm the palate. Mint chocolate, cigar box and a note akin to rancio all appear.
