BenRiach 2005 Peated Single Cask. Image courtesy BenRiach. Cask #3781 was part of the 11th batch of BenRiach single cask releases in August, 2014, and is a 9-year-old peated single malt distilled in 2005 and matured in Virgin American Oak.

The nose has a soft peatiness with heather smoke, honey, vanilla, and hints of coconut, maple, and cedar. The taste is thick, rich, and smoky with a peatiness that builds and builds through the finish and notes of vanilla, coconut, brown sugar, and maple. The smokiness slowly fades on the finish with hints of ashiness, brown sugar, and molasses. (October, 2014)
