BenRiach Introduce Peated Cask Strength Speyside Malt

Just Launched: BenRiach Peated Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

In March last year, Batch 1 of our BenRiach Cask Strength was launched, showcasing the raw style of our distillery as sampled at source: straight from the cask. An exceptional whisky, it earned Silver Outstanding at the 2016 IWSC awards. Today, its peated counterpart has been launched, in keeping with our unconventional approach of distilling both Classic and Peated Speyside malt whisky. Bottled at 56%, of natural colour and non chill filtered, BenRiach Peated Cask Strength offers notes of campfire smoke and toasted oak, balanced perfectly with our BenRiach whisky’s signature orchard fruit and barley notes.

Naturally rich, and specially selected by our Master Distiller, Billy Walker, BenRiach Peated Cask Strength is destined to delight fans of peated malt, as well as those looking for something bold from the Speyside region.

Our new BenRiach Peated Cask Strength Batch 1 is an exciting first for our distillery. Made with heavily peated malted barley, to produce a unique, smoky expression, it also captures the Speyside character of BenRiach. Luscious and smooth, the peat is beautifully balanced with our delicious Speyside notes, making this whisky a wonderful addition to any malt collector’s portfolio.

BenRiach Peated Cask Strength Batch 1 will be available from specialist whisky retailers soon.

Bright summer gold.

Butterscotch drizzled over campfire-roasted apples, combined perfectly with crisp white pepper. A gentle, earthy oak character adds to the subtly peated back note.

A warm, toasted oak sweetness, combines with toffee apples and ripe nectarines. A sweet heather smoke slowly builds, leaving a lingering peat note, alongside Scottish tablet and rich stewed barley.
