At Benriach they are known for doing things a little differently, following in the footsteps of their intrepid founder, John Duff, who pursued whisky adventures as far afield as South Africa and Kentucky, before building Benriach Distillery in 1898, in the heart of Speyside.
They have developed a reputation for innovative maturation, using an eclectic mix of cask types, and their earthern-floored dunnage warehouses contain an array of different casks maturing. Benriachs master blender specially selects a cask which shows exceptional taste and character - individual, yet smooth, rounded and full of personality - to be included as a cask bottling.
Each Cask Bottling is an exclusive limited release showcasing the unique character of Benriach Distillery and demonstrating the influenceof the wood of the cask on this Speyside whisky. There is 615 bottles and each bottle is individually numbered.
Nose - Apple and almond frangipane with a twist of orange peel served with creme brulee.
Palate - Armagnac appears mid-palate bringing macerated white fruits and plums with ground nutmeg and traces of soft new leather.
