The Benriach Arumaticus 12 years old single malt was released in May 2007, BenRiach 'Arumaticus 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 'Arumaticus Fumosus', the single malt whisky has been finished in Jamaican Dark Rum Barrels, and the name, which is Latin, literally translates to 'smoky rum'.
This maintains the tradition of giving our peated expressions Latin names, which started with Curiositas (10 years old) and Authenticus (21 years old), and which has become somewhat of a signature for BenRiach.
Bottled at 46% (92 proof), at natural colour and non chill filtered, 'Arumaticus Fumosus' is available on a strictly limited basis, with just 290 six-packs available world-wide.
Peat reek and smokies, moor herbs and heather, followed by a cascade of rum and sultanas.
Peat, eucalyptus, smokies, wild flowers and vanilla, with a huge infusion of sultanas and rum.
