BenRiach Solstice 17 Year Old Tasting Notes



Appearance

Impressive colour spectrum, showing distinct rose characteristics with a bright copper crest.

Nose

Fabulous aroma of stewed summer berries including strawberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants. The berry component is richly locked together by a muscular peaty blast. Latter traces of fortified wine and grape like qualities become apparent.

Palate

Initially dry roasted nutty flavours flow over the palate. This advances to become a heavy peaty affair. Subtle notes of dried raisins and candied fruit. Clean and very enticing with the dominant peat flavours lingering on the palate. Smooth and very long.



Conclusions



A unique mix of fruit and peat which marry with extraordinary precision in classic proportions.
