BenRiach releases Authenticus 30yo

24 November 2017

The BenRiach Distillery is releasing a 30yo peated single malt in time for the festive season.

Non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% abv, BenRiach Authenticus is the oldest expression in the distillery's peated range.

'At the BenRiach Distillery we pride ourselves on our unconventional distilling philosophy, creating unpeated, peated and triple-distilled malt whisky,' master blender Rachel Barrie said.

'We believe Authenticus 30yo will impress with its distinguished profile. It is a more intense Speyside malt which carries a delightful balance of wild honey and peat on the nose.

'The combination of the soft, creamy vanilla, summer fruits and slight hint of cocoa coax the palate, while the infused sweet peat builds gradually to complete the unique character.'

BenRiach holds an inventory of peated Speyside single malt, dating as far back as 1975. Research by  Charles MacLean uncovered BenRiach was the first Speyside distillery to release a peated expression since WWII.

46% abv, £400/70cl, BenRiach
