The second batch of Benriach Cask Strength combines whisky matured in american oak, ex oloroso sherry and virgin oak casks and is bottled at a pretty massive ABV.
i picked up this bottle of BenRiach Curiositas Peated a while back and keep going back to it for a lovely sweet peaty blast.
There have been a number of peated benriachs over the years but this is the first batch of their Cask Strength non age statement version and i was really excited to try it.
Many of my whisky friends know that at the moment I have a bit of a thing for Port matured or finished whiskies so when my good friend Yoav (@yoavgel) from Whisky Gospel was over in the UK
I’ve seen a number of distilleries trying different things recently with Triple Distillation being one of them.
