Septendecim is seventeen in Latin. Finished in Ex-bourbon casks, a robust, yet suddenly mellow whisky. Marketing text says, made like a Speyside whisky from the past.
Well, if that's Speyside's past, I want more of it! Gret peated single malt from BenRiach, yet again. Lively but smooth, sometimes mellow but another time a badass. Rich and rough, like Muhammad Ali. Definitely When We Were Kings from Speyside.
BenRiach is a diamond of Speyside, giving great smoky drams with different kind of character than Islay. BenRiach 17 yrs Septendecim is part of their usual range, which is nice.
Nose: Fresh with peat and crispy smoke. Oak and hints fruits.
Taste: Peat with honey are strong. Nutty, green tea with smoke. Very juicy and mellow.
Finish: Spices and bitter notes rise with ginger. Earthly and floral. Strong finish.
Balance: BenRiach delivers once again! Fresh peated single malt in good balance.
