The Benriach distillery is located in the Heartland of Malt Whisky and displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Established in 1898 and built by John Duff, it is one of the few distilleries with its own on-site floor maltings, and draws its water from the Burnside Springs.
This complex single malt has a creamy, delicate taste and aroma that truly captures the Benriach character with a classic combination of orchard fruits, vanilla, toasted coconut and sweet barley.
Colour - Gleaming harvest Gold
Nose - Sweet toasted oak spices interwoven with roasted orchard fruits and dusted with cracked barley. Black vanilla pods, desiccated coconut and a gentle floral note add complexity to the ripe, fruit-laden nose.
Palate - Creamy heather honey pours over a medley of apples, pears and apricots. Subtle notes of candied peel and fresh ginger give a delicate warmth.
Finish - Luscious and velvety.
