SOLSTICE AGED 17 YEARS
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Benriach Solstice Aged 17 Years is distilled from heavily peated malted barley, matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in tawny port casks. This memorable malt is a superb marriage of peat and fruit, a worthy successor to our 15-year old edition.
NATURAL CASK-IMPARTED COLOUR ABV 50% NON CHILL FILTERED
Fabulous aroma of stewed summer berries including strawberries, blackcurrants and red currants. The berry component is richly locked together by a muscular peaty blast. Latter traces of fortified wine and grape like qualities become apparent.
Impressive colour spectrum, showing distinct rose characteristics, with a bright copper crest.
Initial, dry roasted nutty notes flow over the palate. This advances to become a heavy peaty affair. Subtle notes of dried raisins, and candied fruit. Clean and very enticing with the dominant peat flavours lingering on the palate. Smooth and very long.
