BENRIACH 12 Year Old 'Heredotus Fumosus

Benriach 12 Pedro Ximenez finish.

Had this last night. If I was given it blind, I'd swear it was a Bowmore.

There's a 15-year-old one too, but the one I have is the Heredotus Fumosus 12-year-old http://www.kensingtonwinemarket.com/pro ... /index.php

I'd like to try the 15-year-old.

I have a Bowmore 17 open, so I'll try them side-by-side tonight. I'm not sure what in particular I found so similar to the Bowmore, but it really sparked something. It might have been the ashy smoke.

Some of the recent Benriach releases have been fantastic. The 21 Authenticas is current favourite.
