BenRiach Arumaticus 12 year old, 46%

Price: $85 Issue: Spring 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Finished in a dark rum cask. Notes of peat, smoked mackerel, and suggestions of charcoal married with molasses, vanilla wafer, golden raisin, cantaloupe, and a dollop of honey. It's missing the more defined fruit notes that the other two have. I'd like to see this at 15 years to give it more depth.
