Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Many years ago, the BenRiach distillery defied convention and started to peat a proportion of our spirit, returning to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Matured in a combination of Oloroso Sherry casks and Bourbon barrels, Peated Cask Strength Batch 1 is non chill filtered, natural colour and bottled at 56%, so it can be experienced as if sampled from the source – straight from the cask. Warming oak, orchard fruits culminating in a sweet heather smoke.
NATURAL CASK-IMPARTED COLOUR ABV 43% NON CHILL FILTERED
Rich orchard fruits, honey and toasted oak.
Ripe pear, nectarine and malt sweetness, with a finishing note of almond and spiced vanilla.
"The Benriach 10 has the classic sweet and fruity style of Benriach with orchard fruits, toasted oak spice and the sweetness of the malt"
A time honoured tradition
The 1890's were challenging times for many distilleries in Scotland, and Benriach was no different. Shortly after opening in 1898, the stills fell silent for sixty five years. But Benriach stayed active by malting barley in its own floor maltings. Today, we honour tradition once a year during our spring ’Malting Season’, a special time when we create our own malted barley on site.
