About this deal

B and B-: Good and above average. The best of the mass market whiskeys fit in this category, as do the bulk of the premium brands. A B- is three stars. Following a series of ownership changes (including Chivas and Pernod), and a small number of unremarkable single malt releases, Benriach was bought by an independent consortium in 2004 and has since gone on to produce one of the industry’s most diverse range of whiskies.

Nose: Orange marmalade right away, this bouquet is very deep. The jamminess drys into tobacco and a hint of vanilla.

Whiskybase B.V. (“Whiskybase”, “we” or “us”, company details below) offers a whisky enthusiasts online platform that provides its members access to the most comprehensive, transparent and trusted resource of whisky bottles and allows and stimulates its members to contribute information about whisky bottles to the platform (“Service”). Not all peat is the same. The organic matter that decays influences the type of peat, and thus the flavor of it. The isles, with Islay being the biggest and most prominent peat producer, tend to have more heather and low-lying plant life. This results in the biggest and boldest peat flavors.If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect. BenRiach The Original Ten is a great intro to BenRiach, Speyside and Single Malt Scotch in general and I’d happily recommend it to new Scotch drinkers as a way to get to know the basic profile of Scotch whisky. It’s a tasty easy drinker and the perfect gateway into the rest of what Scotland has to offer. If we decide not to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, such decision shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. BenRiach only peats malt for a short period each year, in what they call “Smoke Season.” They source all of their peat from the Highland and Speyside regions. Their peated expressions consist of both peated and unpeated malt. Highland peat is lighter than its Islay counterpart. The region has more forests and consequently has peat made of tree roots and hardier plant life. Many peated whisky distillers, both within and without Scotland, source their peat from both regions for more available flavor profiles.

The initial use for peat in whisky was a practical one. After malting, barley needs to be dried before the next step.
