Released in July 2008, 13 years old ‘Maderensis Fumosus’ (Latin for ‘smoky Madeira’) is a heavily peated BenRiach, originally matured in American oak, then finished in Madeira wine barrels. This is the fourth expression of BenRiach where we have started with peated BenRiach as the base whisky and exposed it to the influence of cask finishing, following on from the 12 years old versions finished, respectively, in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks, Aged Tawny Port casks and Jamaican Dark Rum casks. Bottled at natural colour and non chill filtered, availability is very limited46% ABV
Rich peat reek with vanilla, cocoa, spices and tropical fruits.

An avalanche of bitter sweet peat and smoke, in harmony with citrus, butterscotch, peaches and cinnamon.
