- Benriach Birnie Moss Intensely Peated
BenRiach Birnie Moss Intensely Peated Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Different in style for a Speyside malt, this unique expression wields its peaty, smoky character with a precocious vigour.
Nose: Rich peaty notes in wonderful balance with vanilla oak wood.
Palate: An avalanche of rich, sweet Speyside Peat, in combination with vanilla and tropical fruits.
BenRiach Single Malt Whiskey
Benriach Distillery in 1898 just south of Elgin complete with a siding connecting it directly to the great North of Scotland Railway. But Benriach was forced to close in 1900 and remained closed until 1965 and whilst its traditional floor maltings continued to operate complete with the pagoda roof over the malt kiln it too finally closed in 1999. Having re-opened in 2004 the Benriach range is now extensive and features age expressions beginning with Benriach 10 years, 16 Year Old and vintage cask releases running back to the 1970s. The distillery is owned by Brown Forman of America.
