Released in May 2007, BenRiach ‘Heredotus Fumosus’ is part of a range of three 12yo heavily peated BenRiachs, originally matured in American oak and then finished either in sherry, port or dark rum wood. In the case of ‘Heredotus Fumosus’, the whisky has been finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry butts, and the name, which is Latin, literally translates to ‘smoky sherry’. This maintains the tradition of giving peated expressions Latin names, which started with Curiositas (10yo) and Authenticus (21yo), and which has become somewhat of a signature for BenRiach. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46%.

Nose: Sweet peat and smoke, clean citrus and vanilla notes with a rich backdrop of Pedro Ximenez sherry. 

Palate: Sweet peat and smoky kippers, bog myrtle, lavender and sultanas.

Finish: A sublime Pedro Ximenez sherry finish.
