Benriach 12 Herodotus Fumosus (Scottish Single Malt, 46% abv)

Nose: With the first sniff, the sherry-peat combination immediately shows itself. Elegant sooty, smoky scents in addition to raisins, vanilla and citrus. It is also possible to smell woody and earthy scents. Intense, aromatic but balanced structure.

Palate: As on the nose, the sherry-peat balance is also present on the palate. But I can say that the peat character is a little more dominant on the palate. Sooty, spicy and iodine flavors accompany sweet aromas such as raisins and vanilla. Quite easy to drink and still aromatic.

FinishShort-medium length. Sweet spices, salt and light soot.

Comment: Benriach 12 Herodotus Fumosus is a complex and interesting expression that successfully presents the sherry-peat balance. Herodotus Fumosus may be the right choice for those who say, "I like Islay whiskeys, but they should be a little lighter and have sherry flavors".
