Birnie Moss is BenRiach's heavily peated, no-age-statement (NAS) variant. This youngster is unapologetically feisty with malt peated to 35ppm, providing a solid dose of peat and smoke, and offering great competition to the slew of peated NAS whiskies being released from the Islay peat-giants over recent years. The whisky is named after an area of windswept Moorland situated close to the distillery. Bottled at 48%.
Nose: Rich woody peat with a some vanilla and oak.
Palate: Plenty of peat not medicinal but woody and sweet. Vanilla with lots of tropical fruit.
Finish: Medium in length with peat dominating.
