$229.95 inc GST
700 ml, 46% abv, Scotland (Speyside)
Back in the 1970’S, the BenRiach Distillery made the bold move of returning to distilling peated malt, at a time when most Speyside distillers had moved their focus towards unpeated malt distillation. BenRiach Temporis, meaning ‘time’ in Latin, emulates the original character and flavour of Speyside malts in the nineteenth century. Aged for over two decades, this is a rare opportunity to experience a peated single malt of this age in Speyside.
To create BenRiach Temporis, the Master Blender has expertly blended together an eclectic mix of four casks: Bourbon barrels, Virgin Oak,Pedro Ximenez Sherry and Oloroso Sherry. Distilled with peated malt from the North East of Scotland, BenRiach Temporis captures multi-faceted notes of caramelised pear and tropical fruits balanced with toasted oak spice, all engulfed by a honeyed peat smoke.
NOSE : Caramelised pear and toasted oak spice fuse with honeyed peat and smoked pinewood.
TASTE : Smooth creamy peat builds to uncover roasted orchard fruits and eucalyptus. Tropical pineapple and star anise gradually appear with smoked cinnamon embers, lingering long into the sweet and smoky finish.
