BenRiach Dunder - 18 Year Old / Dark Rum Barrels
Following on from Albariza, 18 year old Dunder is part of the heavily peated range from BenRiach Distillery. The whisky has been originally matured in American oak casks, then finished in dark rum barrels, bottled at 46% vol.
Dunder takes its name from the residue of cane juice left in a still after the distillation of a batch of rum. Traditionally used as a yeast source in the fermentation process of Jamaican rum, it gives the rum a unique aroma and flavour.

BenRiach Dunder Producer Notes
Nose: Crisp candied peel holds waves of soft peach and ripe banana dusted with Demerara sugar. Delicate rounded peat smoke combines with gentle sweet oak spices.
Colour: Summer harvest straw.
Taste: Dramatic peat smoke and barley complement crisp citrus zest, white pepper and fresh ginger. Caramelised orchard fruits and dried apricots develop to a rich grassy wood smoke finish.
