BENRIACH BIRNIE MOSS

BENRIACH BIRNIE MOSS

BENRIACH BIRNIE MOSS 500 281 Federico Bosco

Released in 2008, this Benriach is repurposed annually and is now part of the core-range. It is described as Intensely Peated and takes its name from the moor located near the distillery. It is a young product, without declared age, that should deliver a “peaty level” completely different from the Islay whisky.

  • ABV: 48%

TASTING NOTES BENRIACH BIRNIE MOSS

Nose: rather peated. It starts off with smoky notes, followed by black pepper. There is also a light note of sulfur, together with hints of citrus (lemon and lime). Rather simple.

Palate: you can feel the peat together with spicy hints of white pepper. Then it continues with citrus (lemon) and yellow fruit (apple). Slightly mentholated after a few moments.

Finish: medium persistency. It develops notes of peat, white pepper and apple.

Benriach is creating several good quality, structured and pleasant products. This Birnie Moss is not a very complex one and it is equipped with a limited intensity. It is a decent whisky, but that’s it.
