At Benriach Distillery 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.
Back in the 1970's, Benriach made a bold move of distilling a proportion of its whisky using peated malted barley, making a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts made during th nineteeth Century.
Benriach Temporis has been matured for at least twenty-one years in four different types of casks: boubon barrels, virgin oak casks, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Whisky from these four woods is then expertly blended together by the distillery's master blender to create a rare Speyside spirit.
Nose - Caramelised pear and toasted oak spice fused with honeyed peat and smoked pinewood.
Palate - Smooth creamy peat builds to uncover roasted orchard fruits and eucalyptus, tropical pineapple and star anise gradually appear with smoked cinnamon embers.
Finish - Lingering, sweet and smoky.
