An exquisite and perfectly balanced 21YO release from Benriach. It is honey gold in colour. On the nose, ripe summer fruit compote with contrasting candied peel and a warming stem ginger background. On the palate, soft vanilla and cinnamon give way to tangy red fruits and citrus peel. Barley sugars and honeyed malt build into the long, sweet and satisfying finish. Elegantly smoky.

"This single malt has been crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit and four cask matured for at least twenty one years in bourbon barrels, sherry casks, virgin oak casks and Bordeaux red wine casks. During long maturation Benriach’s sweet Speyside smoke mellows and integrates with the fruit, malt and oak. After twenty one years, rich layering develops into an elegant honey smoke, enriched through multi-layered cask maturation. The whisky from each cask type, imbued with particular flavour characteristics, is then expertly married together to create a rich and elegant single malt, layered with lush orchard fruit and toasted pine wood with a honey smoke finish. All in perfect harmony." Benriach

Founded in 1898 by John Duff, the original BenRiach was short-lived; following monetary difficulties the distillery was sold to the Longmorn Distilleries Company who closed it at the turn of the twentieth century. BenRiach, named for the Gaelic for ‘speckled mountain’, was one of the few distilleries with its own floor maltings. The upturn in whisky’s fortunes in the 1960s saw Benriach run from 1965 onwards under numerous new owners; The Glenlivet Distillers, then Seagrams, then Pernod Ricard followed by the South African company, Infra Trading, who then established the BenRiach Distilling Co. Brown-Forman, the Louisville, Kentucky-based producer of Jack Daniel's, in-turn bought the BenRiach Distilling Co in 2016. Today, BenRiach is in full production and has become a firm favourite for many Scotch whisky fans since it was reinvigorated under Walker and Co. It has cemented a reputation as an unconventional whisky distiller with some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. BenRiach distils three malt whisky styles - unpeated, peated and triple distilled - and is one of the two remaining Speyside distilleries to use malted barley from its own on-site floor maltings, which were reopened in 2013.
