BenRiach Heredotus Fumosus
12 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Finish
70cl 46% abv

Released in May 2007 and Limited to 3180 bottles world wide 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'.

Price £32.90
Released in May 2007, BenRiach 'Heredotus Fumosus' is part of a range of three 12 year old 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 Benriach giving their peated expressions Latin names, which started with Curiositas (10 years old) and Authenticus (25 years old), and which has become somewhat of a signature for BenRiach.

Bottled at 46% (92 proof), at natural colour and non chill filtered, 'Heredotus Fumosus' is available on a strictly limited basis, with just 3180 bottles available world-wide (Released in May 2007).

Tasting Notes:
Colour: Golden
Nose: Sweet peat and smoke, clean citrus and vanilla notes with a rich backdrop of Pedro Ximenez Sherry.
Taste: Sweet peat and smoky kippers, bog myrtle, lavender and sultanas, with a sublime Pedro Ximenez Sherry finish.
