Benriach adds to heavily peated range

4th of December, 2015 | Posted in Brand News | Email Article | Print Article

BenRiach has launched Latada, a brand-new limited edition 18 years old peated single malt finished in Madeira casks.

It’s the Elgin distillery’s third offering in its range of peated cask finishes, joining the BenRiach Albariza and Dunder on the shelves.

Bottled at 46% abv, at natural colour and non-chill filtered, Latada is distilled from peated malted barley matured in American oak casks before enjoying a finishing period in fine Madeira casks.

The unusual name comes from the traditional “Latada” or trellised vine system on the island of Madeira where the vines are laid out horizontally above the ground on low trellises.
