BenRiach 1986 Peated 29 years old (Oloroso Sherry Butt # 7569) / 51% / – On August 19, 2016 BenRiach Distillery released Batch # 13 of its famous single cask bottlings. The company master distiller, Billy Walker, selected twelve casks ranging from 40 to 16 years old, “demonstrating a hugely eclectic range of expressions”. Batch # 13 includes whiskies in the classic Speyside style, peated expressions and wood finishes, such as Tawny Port, Burgundy, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, Claret, Madeira and Tokaji. Ex-Oloroso sherry butt no. 7569 was filled with peated spirit on December 18, 1986. After 29 years it produced 568 bottles of unchill-filtered cask strength whisky (51% abv). (Producer’s tasting note.)

Nose: sumptuous ripe plums and dried figs surrounded by a sweet barbeque smoke character.
 
Palate: rich sticky dates and dark orange marmalade combine with sweet peat notes and lingering cigar box characters, all infused with fresh coffee grounds and cocoa beans.
