The folks at BenRiach have announced the launch of BenRiach Dunder Peated 18 Year Old Dark Rum Finish which is a one-off bottling with only 1888 bottles available worldwide, 240 of which will be available in the UK.
This intriguing new Speyside expression comes from the same range as the BenRiach Albariza, Dunder is actually the unusual name from the residue of cane juice left in a still after distilling a batch of rum. Traditionally used as a yeast source in the fermentation process of Jamaican rum, it gives the rum a unique aroma and flavour.
Dunder, at 46% ABV, is distilled from peated malted barley and is initially matured in American oak casks and then finished in dark rum barrels.
It combines the distinct and contrasting aromas and flavours associated with richly peated malt whisky and the elegant style of wood selected for final maturation.
