Description

BenRiach, established in 1898, is one of the few distilleries with its own on-site floor maltings.

A richly peated malted barley is used as the cereal varietal to produce Authenticus, a unique and intriguing Peated Expression.

This rare peated single malt from The Heart of Speyside has wonderful overtones of rich peat-reek, in harmony with honey, chocolate, raisins, oak-wood and fascinating spices.

In fact, the Peated BenRiach series is a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century.

Authenticus is another distinctive and welcome addition to the Speyside scene.

TASTING NOTES: –

APPEARANCE: Bright, warm amber gold.

NOSE: Elegant aromas of ripe pineapple, fresh mountain herbs and a profusion of sweet peat. A huge pungent blast of wood smoke emerges, partnering the peated element perfectly. Full bodied and audacious.

PALATE: A fantastic fusion of rich peat and smouldering embers bound together by fresh herbs – oregano, aniseed and chicory in particular. A rush of sweet, wild honey provides a lovely contrast to this lively, intense expression.

CONCLUSIONS: Terrific weight and development which leaves a powerful long lasting impression on the palate.
