Ab 06.12.2017, 13:00 Uhr und nur für Clubmitglieder: Kilchoman.


Aus der Pressemitteilung: „BenRiach Distillery announces the release of a twenty-one year old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, unconventionally matured in a combination of four types of cask: bourbon barrels, virgin oak, Pedro Ximenez and red wine casks. This new unpeated expression is likely to both surprise and delight, as it opens with fresh summer fruit compote, soft vanilla and vibrant candied peel, developing into tangy red fruits, barley sugar and the warmth of chocolate ginger. I look forward to sharing this enigmatic malt with all intrigued to discover more. This unpeated single malt is one of two BenRiach expressions to be released at 21 years old, and the other, its richly peated partner, will appear early 2018.

Offizielle Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Bright autumn gold.
  • Nose: Ripe summer fruit compote with contrasting candied peel and a warming stem ginger background.
  • Taste: Soft vanilla and cinnamon give way to tangy red fruits and citrus peel. Barley sugars and honeyed malt build into the long, sweet and satisfying nish.


  • Nose: Waxy with vanilla pods, lemon sponge, candy floss, malted barley and digestive biscuits.
  • Palate: Watermelon, lime and lemon zest, green apples, pencil shavings, salted peanuts, golden syrup with light mineral notes.
  • Finish: An excellent balance of peat smoke;Earthy, briny and hints of liquorice, leaving you yearning for more.


  • Nose: The nose on this dram is constantly changing and always exquisite. Pick your favourite dessert: vanilla ice-cream with butterscotch sauce, pecan pie or creme caramel. Custard cream biscuit and chocolate honeycomb are also present. The tasting panel has a sweet tooth.
  • Palate: The whisky has a lovely delicate floral quality of lemongrass and citrus tea. There’s also the sweetness of almonds and marzipan which is balanced with a hint of peat and ends on a note of luxury, pure smooth velvet.
  • Finish: You can tell this was matured in a dunnage warehouse, with the soft earthy finish. At the end you can taste salted caramel and the spiciness of freshly baked cinnamon buns drizzled with honey.
