BenRiach 1976 Peated, 35 years, Hogshead Cask No. 8804, 51/232, 54.9% abv.

This one is from batch 9 of the BenRiach single cask range. Heard it was one of the peatier ones in the single cask range.

Nose: peated fruit, brown sugar, red apples.

Palate: some peat, extremely well balanced, old steamed lotus leaves, light wood, tea? Extremely tasty.

Finish: moderate, peaty. A little heat.

Pretty good, the peat distracts from the fruitier aspects, but I could taste both clearly. It's quite well done, but there seem to be some expired sherry flavors in there. Wish I could revisit this one day.

Grade: B+
